Meditation as a Healthy Option

Written By: Jim Long on September 14, 2009 2 Comments

Is meditation a healthy option for you?  Will meditation improve your mental outlook?  Will your spirit be lifted through meditation?

Medication started  several millennia ago.  There were no records that we are able to point out when it exactly began but there are many civilizations that started today’s meditation exercises.

India is well known for their meditation practices.  With the passing centuries, many Hindi scholars wrote about meditation and all their benefits.  Some of the better-known Hindi texts included the Vedas and the Yoga Sutras that were written by Patanzali.

No one can argue a more influential source of meditation than Siddharta Gautama known as Buddha.  In 500 B.C. his goal was to be better through the practice of meditation.

The East has practiced meditation for many centuries.  The Western world started it a few years later.  It was the mid 20th century that started meditation and made it so popular with the Western people.

Now more and more people are starting this type of exercise.  Many meditation methods are used in religious practices but there are many that do not use the spiritual part.  They will usually focus on the health benefit factors and how it can help them in the fast world that we live in.

Even though the spiritual side of meditation is no longer there for many, it is still a great method for well being.  This is one of the central parts of meditation.
