2. Pre-gaming. Meditating, unexpectedly, is a fabulous way to pre-party. Sitting down to meditate before you go out to socialize sharpens focus, boosts confidence and relaxes your facial expression. You’ll find that you exude a refreshed look and a calming presence upon entering a room full of people.

3. Posture. How many times a day to you check in on your posture? Before meditating, the state of my posture never crossed my mind, but as I mastered the art of sitting still, my posture improved; I became more alert and aware of my body.

4. Imagination/Inspiration. As the clouds of thought drift through you during meditation, so do creative ideas. As you begin to erase the compartmentalized thinking we need to survive in our society, more fluid ideas approach to inspire.

5. Patience. When I first started, I noticed that a big temptation I had to overcome was the urge to check my phone. I wanted to see how many minutes had passed or how many minutes I had left. However, this urge has dissipated; time becomes irrelevant during meditation.

6. Weight-loss. This is a long-term benefit I’ve noticed. Calming the mind, calms the cravings apparently.

7. Cultural awareness. Although my practice blossomed from the Western health trends of wellbeing and mindfulness, after harvesting the benefits, I learned more about its fruitful presence in Eastern culture. My childhood interest in Buddhism has come toward the forefront of my adult mind. I am much more open to metaphysical theories and philosophies.
