Meditation for Mental Unrest
Lately, mental illnesses seem more evident than ever. Unfortunately, the physical health of affected people is in jeopardy because they are unable to take care of themselves. Depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder are just a small portion of the disorders that can afflict the mind. In these cases, effective workouts such as yoga serve to be a Catch-22; a person is not stable enough to engage in the activity, but it is the activity that would greatly benefit this type of person.
Meditation may be the answer to this problem. If the mind itself has control over a person, and a helpless human must surrender to thoughts, tuning into the subconscious could be the key to curing what ails a person with serious mental problems. In no way is it suggested that yoga take the place of a psychiatrist, psychologist, or counselor, but the practice is beneficial to the health and could improve an ill person’s mental health a great deal. If you or anyone you know suffers from a disorder of the mind, I encourage you to look into meditation. When you are at the lowest point in your life, things can only get better from there.
