There have been numerous studies that show meditating can be super beneficial in all aspects of someone’s life. Whether it’s distressing your mind, ridding your body of muscle aches or simply helping raise your spirits, meditation is definitely a positive tool. However, not every one can get behind the practice. Whenever we speak to someone and ask them about meditating, if they don’t do it, they usually say something about not having enough time or concentration, but in reality, all it takes is five minutes and a little bit of focus. Don’t believe us? Well, the awesome folks over at happify daily created an Infographic that not only addresses the biggest misconceptions about meditation, but also gives helpful tips on how to do it, and information about why you should do it.
