Meditation is probably the most popular health topic today. It is prescribed not only for peace of mind for also for physical conditions like high blood pressure, stress headaches etc. For we all know that there is direct connection between the state of our mind and our physical health. Even our appearance depends on how we feel. No beauty parlor can bring a sheen or glow to our face that a happy and content mind gives.
Meditation is not just fixing your mind/eyes on a particular object. it is not a passive renunciation of all activities - but it is actively controlling your mind and focusing on a particular deity that you want to immulate. Meditation starts with the journey of mind from daily activities, thoughts to more specific goals.
Meditation is an active process of cleansing one's alert and inactive mind that collects various impressions throughout the day, that form our character and moods. Once the mind is trained to accept only what is good, meditation becomes a part of life.

A healthy mind is one that has no worries, but can one avoid worries at all, are they not a part of our life? It is in our hands to either spend the whole day worrying over small things or look at the bigger picture and make life better for our self and those around you.
How do you avoid worries?
- Do not expect more than you are capable of acquiring - know your strengths and limitations.
- Do not blame others for your unhappiness - nobody can make you happy or unhappy - only you can do this.
- Avoid misconception - clear the air by talking about your problem with others.
- Learn to face problems face to face - avoiding an issue only makes it monumental in your mind.
- Have a positive attitude towards life - the World is not out to get you but to help you.
- Take a break and spend time with nature - nothing can be more soothing.
