Learning Project Update

It took me a long time to figure out what my learning project would be.  I had no idea what I could do, or what would even be interesting to learn about.  I ended up talking a lot to my mom about it and she did agree that i do get stressed easily and often, she suggested that I should learn about meditation and am I ever glad that she did.  It has helped me in many ways that I thought wouldn’t be possible.

First starting my learning project, I knew nothing about meditation.  The first thing that popped to mind was the Budda’s because that is what they are known for.  I never knew that there were any special techniques or that meditation could help your health as well.

With my experiences of meditation I have learnt a lot.  I’ve realized even the smallest amount of time of meditation will be beneficial to me in the end.  I do get stressed very easily so when I take the time to meditate, even if it’s just for five minutes, there is a big impact. I’ve also started to meditate when i’m nervous for a test, feeling homesick or just annoyed in general.  It gets the thoughts off my mind and i feel fresh and ready to take up any challenges that are sent to me.

When I first started to meditate, I felt like there was no beneficial at all.  I didn’t feel any difference after an attempt and it honestly felt like a waste of time.  Now, I love to meditate.  I am starting to realize that the concentration and wanting to clear my mind is important.  Every attempt is successful and I absolutely love the way i feel after meditating.
