Below is an excerpt from a little article entitled "Motivation to Meditate" :
With a little consideration, it’s easy to see what meditation can do for you. Study after study has proven that it makes you a much healthier individual overall. It improves your immune system, your energy level, and your cardiovascular system. Above even that, it helps you to gain control of the mental war that is going on in your head. Without getting clear and quiet, it is difficult to tap into the inner voice and thoughts that are so important. Listening to this intuition will guide you in the right direction. With this inner guidance system loud and clear, you’ll make fewer mistakes. In contemplation of these many benefits, it should hopefully be easier for you to find motivation to meditate.
[After a while of meditating consistently], you will start to notice a change in the way you deal with people. You will not jump to conclusions as quickly. Your interpersonal relationships will most likely improve. You will probably be in a much better mood throughout the day. Things that used to get on your nerves will not do so as much any more.
Unskillful habits are hard to break and helpful habits are hard to cultivate. No one disputes this. Making an effort is so worth it, however!
