That overwhelming feeling and being unable to cope with mental or emotional pressure in life is called stress.
Do you ever feel like your mind is spinning out of control and you’re wallowing with emotional turmoil?
Things are all over the place, it feels like it’s going to be this way forever?
Then you are living life in reaction mode because of stress which can very much take its toll on you.
Stress is our body’s reaction to difficult situations.
It is frequently triggered when we encounter something novel, unexpected, or threatening to our sense of self, or when we believe we have little control over a situation.
Stress is everywhere and stress affects us all.
It starts affecting your sleep, puts you in a perpetual state of anxiety, and can even manifest itself in physical form as aches or disease.
This stress can be beneficial at times, in small doses, it can help us overcome fear or pain. However, we are not equipped to deal with long-term, chronic stress without negative consequences. Too much of it is not healthy.
It’s even hard to recognise sometimes that you are feeling the effects of stress until you are drowning in it. It’s very easy to normalise this disturbing feeling at the start. With the recent events, much of the world has been feeling it as well, and has been living with it recently. But the truth is…
Stress can have an impact on every aspect of your life, including your emotions, behaviours, cognitive ability, and physical health. There is no part of the body that is immune.
You may think that illness is to blame for your nasty headache, frequent insomnia, or decreased productivity at work. However, stress could be the root of the problem.
Every one of us wants and deserves to feel at peace.
At the end of the day, we’re supposed to feel absolutely at ease and naturally ready to go to bed…
Wake up energised and face the days’ challenges with a positive, calm mind.
Having a calm, steady mind is the key to this…
Ancient monks and swamis would commit to decades or even their whole life to practices like meditation that would help them attain “Samadhi”.
Samadhi is the highest level of consciousness. It is a joyful calm, or even rapture and beatitude, in which one maintains full mental alertness and acuity.
Samadhi cannot be practised because it occurs naturally during meditation. You will experience pure awareness and consciousness while in samadhi, and you may feel as if you have transcended the limitations of the body.
There are incredible lessons we can take from this deeply blissful concept of Samadhi.
To hear more about Samandhi, its meaning, and how to get there, watch the video I shared on Instagram.
