When you can't go outside. Go within.

- Dr. Mrs. Neha A. Sawant

We are so used to pushing ourselves in our day to day activities that sometimes we don't understand what to do with the time we are at home. Let's utilize this time to do something fruitful for ourselves. Our mind is always filled with thoughts that come continuously one after another. Sometimes we are so used to overthinking that we ourselves pull some topic out and start thinking about it.

What we are supposed to learn is to just be present at the moment. No guilt, regrets about the past, and no doubts, fears, anxiety about the future.

Meditation is the best way to practice to be in only this present moment.

When we meditate regularly, we learn to be in the present moment, learn to be patient, learn to shift our focus from unwanted thoughts to the present moment of bliss.

Many people find it difficult to meditate because they don't find it is important to give time to ourselves, and when they try to they can't focus on it as they are not convinced from within.

Our physical body is surrounded by an energetic body which is called “Aura”.

Our physical body is surrounded by an energetic body which is called “Aura”.

When we are stressed, our energetic body ‘Aura’ gets disturbed and our physical body starts absorbing negative energy which leads to physical symptoms in the body. When we do meditation, it strengthens our aura, it becomes positive and our body absorbs less negative energy, reducing physical symptoms as well.

Meditation is a gift you can give to yourself. So start meditating and learn to be in the present moment.
