Meditating to enhance our brain activities is an age old practice, being carried forward by our great ancestors. The act of mediating in early times helped people to fight in composure and also in taking apt decisions for the most difficult times. The minds of the kings and the economists earlier functioned well because they meditated for days and weeks, also they didn’t have big screens to get stuck to and tire their brains. We now can surely not meditate for that much longer time but can surely give an hour or two for enhancing the activities of our brain.
We all are aware of the amount of pressure a young mind nowadays goes through. The art of multi tasking is something necessary if one want to excel in today’s time. With this high paced life where everybody is going on their own pace with just one day at a time thought, one need to sit down and think and doing that is utmost impossible when we talk about a student, who doesn’t have to study only but also have to fulfill the expectations of his/ her peer groups. With all this pressure building up students try to fund a way out and because they cannot find a proper source of enlightenment they reach onto the conclusion of giving up which is extremely a laid back idea and one which should be spewed upon.
Also all this pressure leads students to give up the idea of properly studying which encourages students to just cram all the syllabus without understanding and doing the research; which not only leads to the insecure future but it also develops the habit of taking everything for granted and cramming up whenever they feel the need to.
Answer to all this lies in only one thing i.e. meditation. Meditation can help loosen up the pressure being build up by the society and other things too. The art of meditation is extremely fascinating; it makes your brain work ten times faster and make you feel more relaxed; it opens up your brain and heart which in turn can help you in better understanding of whatever is going around; it will make your idea of cramming on things go away because then you will feel energetic and fresh and willing to understand and research. Not only this, meditation can also help in improvement of your grades and can make you excel in various things by making your mind, body and soul extremely active.
However there are some things which you need to take care about even when you meditate and they are:- Eat and Sleep well; eat well and make sure you take in ample amount of all the necessary proteins and vitamins, sleep for at least 8 hours to give your mind proper rest; do any physical activity when bored and not just get glued to the screens of your laptops and mobile phones; you can do yoga too to make your body function well which in turn will help you meditate and which will make your brain work efficiently.
