Meditation in Current Times 

There is a philosophy called the "Kubler Ross Model".  That is, when a human goes through any tragedy, natural disaster, accident, they pass  through 5 stages.  

These phases are:

  1. Denial - The first stage is denial. In this stage, individuals believe the diagnosis is somehow mistaken, and cling to a false, preferable reality.
  1. Anger - When the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue, they become frustrated. Certain psychological responses of a person undergoing this phase could be: "Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; "Who is to blame?"; "Why would this happen?".
  1. Bargain - The third stage involves the hope that the individual can avoid a cause of grief. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek compromise. 
  1. Depression - The third stage involves the hope that the individual can avoid a cause of grief. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek compromise. 
  1. Acceptance - In this last stage, individuals embrace mortality or inevitable future, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event. People dying may precede the survivors in this state, which typically comes with a calm, retrospective view for the individual, and a stable condition of emotions.

These 5 levels are not limited to Corona. Applies to all the problems in human life.

What will the wise person do?

Going straight from the first level to the fifth level. He will set himself to make next steps to progress in life.

He who is trapped, in any stage, without reaching the fifth stage, becomes mentally ill.

Meditation is the practice that calms you and helps you live a life of awareness & acceptance. 

With hectic paces and stresses, it can seem like there’s simply no time for meditation. But once you know how to quiet your mind and drown out the noise, you’ll find taking meditation breaks will help boost your productivity, improve your focus and mindset, and ultimately, be better for your bottom line. For many, it is a life-changing practice that provides heightened self-awareness and a newfound sense of calm.

Meditation is considered a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Meditation can produce a deep state of relaxation and a tranquil mind. During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. This process may result in enhanced physical and emotional well-being.

Many work situations can lead to long hours, little sleep, and unhealthy habits like sitting for hours at a time, little to no exercise, and snacking throughout the day instead of having a proper meal away from the desk. Meditation benefits people in countless ways, including improved performance and a better sense of wellness during work from home, which isn’t always easy to achieve. Every day is filled with mini (or major!) obstacles, which require the brain to work overtime to get through the day. Rather than transitioning from task to task without a break, a meaningful slowdown can help the brain operate at a higher level.

If a person meditates for 20-30 minutes a day, it can help increase or improve:

  • Communication
  • Productivity
  • Wellness
  • Calmness
  • Engagement
  • Physical and mental health

Types of meditation

There are many types of meditation and relaxation techniques that have meditation components. All share the same goal of achieving inner peace.

Ways to meditate can include:

  • Guided meditation - Sometimes called guided imagery or visualization, with this method of meditation you form mental images of places or situations you find relaxing. You try to use as many senses as possible, such as smells, sights, sounds and textures. You may be led through this process by a guide or teacher.
  • Mantra meditation -  In this type of meditation, you silently repeat a calming word, thought or phrase to prevent distracting thoughts.
  • Mindfulness meditation -  This type of meditation is based on being mindful, or having an increased awareness and acceptance of living in the present moment.
  • Yoga - You perform a series of postures and controlled breathing exercises to promote a more flexible body and a calm mind. As you move through poses that require balance and concentration, you're encouraged to focus less on your busy day and more on the moment.

Keep in mind, for instance, that it's common for your mind to wander during meditation, no matter how long you've been practicing meditation. If you're meditating to calm your mind and your attention wanders, slowly return to the object, sensation or movement you're focusing on.

Experiment, and you'll likely to find out what types of meditation work best for you and what you enjoy doing. Adapt meditation to your needs at the moment. Remember, there's no right way or wrong way to meditate. What matters is that meditation helps you reduce your stress and feel better overall.
