What is meditation and why meditation is important in our life as a midwife?
With this deafening and earsplitting setting we presently have, our mental and physical tension produces and increases stress hormones called “cortisol”. Meditation produce a deep state of relaxation and serenity in our mind. While meditating, you focus your attention and eliminate the brook of chaotic thoughts that may be crowding your mind causing stress. People often use meditation to develop beneficial habits and feelings, such as a positive mood and outlook, self-discipline, healthy sleep patterns, and even increased pain tolerance.
As a midwife, it is important to have a clear state of mind and focus towards your career. When our mind is healthy, we stimulate positive energy and that energy can impact how other people perceive us as a person. That energy can also spread positivity with the people around you.
Over the past few years, I realized how meditation helps me to calm myself in the midst of chaos that surrounds me. I learned spending time on myself, thinking about nothing but pure relaxation and it gave me better results. It has been deeply beneficial to me, as I was able to decide properly about how I was going to decide what path I am going to take.
What is a Mantra?
According to SCL Health organization, a mantra is traditionally a short sound, word or even phrase spoken in Sanskrit and used for meditation purposes. It’s uttered in repetition to help keep our mind and body focused on the moment. And since ancient times, mantras have been considered sacred and to be calming sounds, which is why you’ll often hear the most common “om” used to wind down the end of a yoga class.
But in our modern day and age, the term “mantra” has been co-opted to include self-affirming statements that give us the strength and confidence to face the world. But the underlying purpose is still the same: It’s a way to focus our intentions and calm our minds. So rather than focusing this article on traditional Sanskrit mantras, we’ll explore some daily phrases to say in the morning and keep repeating throughout the day. If you focus your mind on these simple mottos, they should help set you up for success and positivity!
