I just found a very brief little article entitled Meditation Can Offer Health & Spiritual Benefits. What I liked about it was this simple paragraph:
“I used to be very reactionary,” said Amy Garrett. “A problem would come up and I would just react. Now, I am able to respond, as opposed to reacting.” Garrett credits her newfound ‘peace of mind’ to the practice of meditation.
We can really be taken hostage by our reactivity, can't we? Wouldn't it be nice to be free from that?
