Why you should consider meditating

Elizabeth Maldonado, Editorialist

It’s no question that taking time for yourself and taking a mental health break isn’t going to do you any harm. Trying times like this is the perfect time to learn new things and take care of your well being. So why not take five minutes out of your day to meditate?

Meditation can be used to reduce anxiety, depression, and even lower high blood pressure. Not only can it benefit your body but it also helps you see things differently when you’re stuck in a difficult situation. It helps create patience, tolerance, and helps be more aware about yourself and your surroundings. 

People who take the time out of their day to meditate not only live a healthier lifestyle, they live a happier life as well. Imagine how good it feels to wake up in the morning and just know that things are soon going to start turning around because of one simple new habit. Don’t believe me? Then try it for yourself.
