Meditation is the only and best possible proactive solution for all kinds of mental health issues.
Most of the solution by the so-called modern day mental health expert or stress counsellor don’t help permanently or don’t help effectively because they are trying to tackle the problem only at the surface level. However, the problem lies much deeper level in the mind. When the problem appears on the surface level it is already too late.
For example, everybody knows that most crime happens when people lost the control of their mind and everybody understand that they shouldn’t be angry, however, when the anger starts at the deeper level of mind people don’t realize it and by the time it appears on surface it is too late and often people repent at a later stage.
Mental impurities such as anger, anxiety, depression are examples of mental defilement which are lying at the deeper level of mind like a sleeping volcano and modern days solutions are only temporary cure instead of a permanent solution.
For example, Kate Middleton, patron of the children’s mental health charity, recently backs the campaign to raise awareness of the issue as it is identified that one in three adults admitted they would be embarrassed to seek help, which is a good step by the Duchess, however, not an effective solution.
However, meditation which is a free practice, on the other hand, not only help to prevent almost every mental health issue but also helps in reduced blood pressure, lower pulse rate, and increased concentration levels.
Most diseases stem from the discord between mind and body. Regular practice of meditation brings body, mind, emotions, and spirit into harmony.
