University life can be marked by some academic, interpersonal and personal difficulties.
The stimulus coming from all sides, overload the body, the mind, interfere with the ability to think and establish priorities and the stimulus-response mechanism seems to be the only possibility of reaction.
Perhaps it is time to turn off the automatic pilot of reactions and reflect on practices that have evolved over the centuries, helping in the process of self-knowledge, goal setting and improvement in quality of life, in a natural way.
Advances in neuroscience research have shown that meditation can be beneficial to physical and mental health, contributing significantly to improve the quality of life.
More than just a set of techniques applied at a certain time of the day, meditation is what happens in life the moment we focus and connect with the breath, with the present, with the body dynamics.
The concept of mindfulness basically consists of maintaining attention in the present moment, in intention and without judgment. It is the ability to be awake and increase attention in the constant flow of the lived experience.
The subjective experience of meditation can be reflected in different ways, with a predominance of cognitive and emotional benefits and can be a tool for healthy psychological development.
Being awake increases the commitment to the present moment and allows for a better clarity of how thoughts and emotions can impact health and quality of life.
Meditation can thus play a decisive role in academic life but also in personal life, because by getting to know each other better, we can analyze everything around us, in a more comprehensive way.
