Why Meditation Is So Life Changing: 6 Reasons to Meditate Every Day

To feel better, so many people today are taking antidepressants, going to therapy and looking for help from the outside. And while all of these may be necessary in certain cases, many could improve simply by adding exercise and daily meditation session into their life. Yes, this does require work and consistency, but only through work can real fulfillment and change occur. Only when one changes their habits and consciously lets go of things that are taking them down, they will be able to make that positive transformation in life. There is no easy fix, unfortunately.

For a very long period of time, I was convinced that materialism and spirituality cannot co-exist. In fact, I thought that materialism is the direct opposite of spirituality, and that all materialists are inherently “shallow people”.
