    Since last few years, my family is following a healthy and relaxing habit of doing MEDITATION daily for 15 minutes to half an hour duration. My husband has been working in8 telecom field since last 15 years, and hence remains occupied on his phone and laptop most of the time. I was working on my PhD thesis and we had a lovely daughter, she was 4 years old, when we started doing meditation regularly. We husband and wife were so much busy in our respective fields and hence soon started facing so many physical problems like back ache, weakness of body muscles, blurred vision, etc with other problems like clouding of mind, confusion, frequent headaches. Though we had read many articles about meditation in magazines, newspapers etc, but never gave a serious thought to follow it regularly. We were fortunate enough, to have attended a meditation for the beginners session held in our society. There the trainer gave a very simple and effective account of how to incorporate meditation in our daily lives. That was really helpful session and we decided to give it a try. All the three of us started to follow the instructions of the trainer and also brought a guided meditation CD to help ourselves. Within few weeks of regular practice, we all found ourselves feeling much lighter, our anxiety had decreased to a great extent, breathing rate improved, we felt much more energized throughout the day. Our little girl was also enjoying the daily meditation sessions with us and I had noticed that her panicking behaviour had also improved. She had started becoming more confident and to our great surprise she was also trying her hands in teaching meditation to her school friends. I myself experienced that my body muscles started becoming much more relaxed after regular meditation routine. I could understand that power of mind, and how mind controls the whole body. Everything is in mind is such a true saying. Meditation helps us to strengthen the power of our minds. Our decision making abilities also improves greatly. It had been four years now, and we never miss a day without doing meditation. Its our healthy habit that we all are following religiously. We are really grateful to our ancestral sages and spiritual masters who introduced the process of meditation and yoga in our culture.
