Introduction to meditation. Hello, my name is Vladimir, I am going to be your instructor for this class. So some of you may already know that I am an online instructor and I work as a marketing manager. So to be honest, sometimes I feel how stress builds up, and I need a way to alleviate situations so to speak. I'm happy I have found a way and the way is called meditation. So let's talk about meditation.
Today we live in a fast paced world, things happen so quickly, that more often than not, we do not have the chance to react to things thrown at us. We somehow lose the ability to think things over in favor of lightning quick decisions, but it shouldn't be so every one of us needs to slow down a little from time to time in beacom. In this is the word here I would like to underline this word calm. Otherwise stress will build up and will affect how you We deal with the people around us, not only in the workspace but also at home. The practice of meditation is a way for us to be still for a while and let our minds become focused until we become calm enough to deal with the daily pressures of life. Some may think that meditation is a completely religious practice.
While it is true that a lot of religions, especially Eastern ones, take meditation as an integral part of their practice, it is not necessarily the case. In fact, the more people who aren't necessarily religious get into meditation because of its benefits. People practice meditation for a variety of reasons. While we already mentioned that it helps us become still in the fast paced world. Other people meditate for health reasons and to attain a higher state of consciousness among others. If you think that life is stressing you out, it's probably time for you to slow things down a little bit.
Your mind is probably too distracted with so many things to consider and to think about. meditation can help you calm down and let you be stressed or worry free. Meditation also helps a person with lower blood pressure, improved blood circulation, lower heart rate, less perspiration, lower respiratory rate lessened xiety, lower blood cortisol levels, more feelings of well being deeper relaxations and even more. This was just a brief introduction to meditation. Thank you for watching and see you in the next lecture. Bye bye
