Daily morning meditation groups allow clients to start each new day on a positive note. In active addiction, people turn to drugs and alcohol to escape from uncomfortable feelings, but in meditation you learn to do the opposite. You sit with yourself in your own thoughts and feelings instead of pushing them away. At first, that may be difficult. But with practice clients begin each day anew and cultivate a positive relationship with themselves. After further guided practice, the techniques can be applied by clients on an ongoing basis in their daily routines. It's effects are truly transformative and long lasting.
Benefits of Florida Morning Meditation
The World is Quiet
Early in the day, the mind hasn’t stirred yet. There is little friction or activity in the psychic space of the world around you. The inner and outer worlds are calm and relaxed. The mind and body respond positively to this quiet environment. It’s a brilliant time to hit the cushion and commune in peace.
The Mind is at Rest
The mind is like a computer. The more stimulated it is, the more it speeds up and shakes out thoughts. In the early part of the day, your mind has been in respite from the busy world. This makes it a very favorable time to practice meditation. Once you are in the active flow of your day, your mind is busy connecting millions of dots, so you can function at a high level. Not true in the early morning.
Start Each Day Fresh
As much as it might seem like it, no two days are identical. You wake up renewed and refreshed, having taken a pause from the motion of your life. You have a fresh start and you can let go of yesterday. We have a chance to embrace the world with a new view.
Create Positive Momentum
Learning meditation puts you in touch with the calm in the heart of your being. It’s there at each day’s start to find the inner connection to life. Within each of us, there is a place that is always fresh and untouched by the world. Submerging yourself in that peaceful center restores your faith and poise in the positivity of life.
Maintain the Center
Meditation helps you form a foundation for yourself in the present moment. It cancels the distance between you, yourself, and life. When you learn and practice this present moment awareness in the morning through meditation, it creates a powerful momentum for your day. With practice, we will learn how to stay rooted in that center all day long and you’ll respond to life and the complexity of the day as your truest and best self.
Focus that Lasts All Day
Beginning each day with meditation provides innumerable benefits. Meditation is one of the best ways to train and build your awareness. It is physical fitness for your awareness. Through the act of focusing on one thing—say your breath—and then bringing your attention back to that object of focus again and again, you are able to build your capacity for focus. Doing this first thing in the day will expand your focus all day long. It will keep you less distracted, help you stay on path, and make you more productive, interconnected, and happier as a result.
