Why Guided Meditation Helps?

Imagine if you never brushed your teeth. Gross, right?

Ever since childhood we were taught to shower, floss, and brush teeth to maintain good physical hygiene. However, for the most part, few of us were taught proper mental hygiene. Think of meditation as brushing the mind; meditation is a way to clear out the old, decayed buildup in the mind, so that we can think clearly and experience life more fully in the present moment.

The benefits of meditation are abundant and well-documented, and a regular meditation practice can lower the stress-related hormone cortisol, increase mental acuity, and improve judgment. 

While many people find it difficult to meditate, guided meditations make it easy for anyone to practice.
