How do you use prayer, spiritual life, gratitude, or meditation to create good mental health?

Meditation allows you to take a break from your thoughts. Not because you stop thinking them (you can’t), but because you become a witness to them.

This means that instead of being in the grip of everything you think, you can decide if what you are thinking is real or a story.

After a breakup you might think – oh my god! He never loved me! Which leaves you having to recover from being in a relationship where you were never loved. Or you might say “honestly, it feels like he never loved me, but that is not entirely true” setting yourself on an easier path to recovery.

What meditation does is put you in a place where you can reduce your amount of suffering – where your advisor and the person who helps you regard things with perspective is you.

You develop an ability to become your observer, and therefore your own teacher.

I’m not suggesting you don’t need anyone else. I’m saying it helps to be your own ally, and to be under the best possible supervision, which is your own.

Below are individuals experience:

From personal experience I would suggest Transcendental Meditation (TM) as taught by a certified teacher. “tm.org”

Those who practice transcendental meditation may experience a decrease in stress and anxiety within minutes. As with other forms of meditation, long-term practice can lead to even more positive changes, including resilience to stress, lower overall anxiety, and even greater life satisfaction.

Mental Health Benefits

A meta-analysis in 2014 studied 14 research papers that examined 16 studies and 1295 participants.6 Compared with control groups who received their regular treatment for anxiety, this study found that TM was effective in minimizing trait anxiety. Trait anxiety is the type that doesn’t simply come as a passing mood, but rather as more of a regular experience.

Results also showed that subjects showed substantial reductions in anxiety over the first two weeks of practice, but that these reductions could still be sustained three years later. Interestingly, those who experienced the highest levels of trait anxiety at the beginning of the study—those in the 80th to 100th percentile range, like veterans with PTSD and prison inmates—experienced the greatest decrease in anxiety, generally reducing their anxiety levels down to the 53rd to 62nd percentile range.

Another interesting study examined the effects of TM on high school students and found that it worked well for not only their stress levels but their academic work as well.7 More specifically, a group of ninth-graders who participated in a TM program called “Quiet Time,” where they practiced TM for fifteen minutes twice a day.

After several months in the program, the teens scored higher on resilience and lower on anxiety. Those who spent more time in this kind of meditation experienced greater decreases in anxiety. Overall, this group said that they experienced better sleep, greater happiness, and more self-confidence as well.

TM when taught properly by a trained teacher gives profound benefits that cannot be obtained with other techniques. When properly learned it is a most easy and natural technique that is enjoyable to practice. The benefits come absolutely naturally and effortlessly.

  1. NO MATTER WHAT, NEVER hate ANYONE
  2. Always remember, NOTHING IS PERMANENT. Things WILL turn around someday. BELIEVE THAT
  3. STOP COMPLAINING. Complaining is simply giving yourself excuses for your inaction.
  4. STOP BLAMING EVERYONE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS. They are your problems for a reason. You could complain for years and no one will solve them for you or you could use a day or a week or months to take care of that issue.
  5. BE CONTENT WITH YOURSELF AND WHATEVER YOU CURRENTLY POSSESS. Don’t envy. Simply try to make your life better. ACCEPT whatever your life circumstances are currently. Then if you can change it, do so.
  6. LET GO OFF EXPECTATIONS. Your kindness and goodness should come from a place love and abundance. Give freely and you will NEVER be disappointed.
  7. Stop trying to change what you cannot control and take control over what you can. Stop trying to change people but instead try to influence them.
  8. Try to live by yourself. Why? It will teach you how to take responsibility for yourself and how to be self-reliant. Plus you will appreciate people more.
  9. NEVER QUIT whatever makes you happy unless you are uncomfortable doing it or it goes against your beliefs or is unhealthy for you. It is what keeps you sane. Mine is playing sports.
  10. Help people out in the smallest of ways possible. It doesn’t matter. Helping that man out with his load wouldn’t be a bad idea. Getting that kid whose mother cannot afford that toy as his Christmas present would be fantastic. If it wouldn’t break the bank. BELIEVE IT OR NOT THAT KID WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER and do similar for others in the future. And that’s how you make the world a better place
  11. Be grateful.
