Seven Benefits of Achieving a Quiet Mind

We've often heard of monks meditating and chanting on mountain tops or in minimalistic monasteries. There's almost a sacred feel to it all. Being serene and calm while the rest of the world is in chaos does seem to be appealing.

But guess what?

We all can't be monks, and many people wrongly believe that a quiet and serene mind is beyond their reach. Just putting up with the people at work alone seems to require a ton of patience, and you're already down to your last nerve.

So, is it possible to achieve a quiet mind?

The answer is yes, but it will not be easy. You'll need to choose a technique or two to apply in your life daily until you see results. The three best techniques that can be applied are meditation, journaling, and mindfulness. When you continually practice these in your life, you inevitably achieve a quieter mind. It may take you two to three months. There's no denying that this battle will be won in small increments because life is indeed stressful. That's just the way it is, but if you keep at it, you will quiet your mind, and the stresses of life will be like water off a duck's back to you, for the most part.

Here are seven benefits you can expect to get from achieving a quiet mind.

1. Improved focus and concentration
Since your thoughts are less cluttered, it will be easier for you to focus on the essential matters at hand. Once you shut out the noise and focus on the issues that matter, your life will get infinitely better.

2. Less stress
A mind that's continuously stimulated will experience stress and burnout. With all the distractions around us, keeping up can be exhausting.  When you have a quiet and trained mind, these distractions won't matter. You'll not be getting stressed out over political debates with other users on Facebook, and you won't even consider entertaining negative influences on your life.

3. Increased productivity
Increased clarity leads to increased productivity. Instead of running around work like a headless chicken, you'll not be panicky over deadlines and the hundred other commitments. A quiet mind will focus on the most urgent and vital tasks at hand and leave the rest for later. You'll be more productive when you're less nervous.

4. Mindfulness
You'll be more mindful of your surroundings and your activities. You'll taste the food you eat instead of being absorbed in your thoughts while you gobble down your food.  Everything will seem more purposeful, and you'll be where you are, observing what you're doing rather than always living in your head and doing your daily tasks like a robot.

5. A better outlook on life
You'll be more optimistic and positive. Since the worries of the world do not weigh you down, life will seem much better. You may have problems, but you'll not be perturbed over them. You'll handle your issues effectively.

6. Better health
When you're at peace, the stress levels in your body will decrease. Aches and pains will disappear. Your sleep will be better. Digestive problems may become a thing of the past and much more. Stress adversely impacts your body and plants the seeds of disease in your body. When your mind is calm, your health will improve and be great.

7. Calculated decision making
A clear and quiet mind will not make decisions hastily. You're not operating from a place of fear or desperation. You'll think things through and make a calculated decision that's in your best interests.

These seven benefits are definitely worth the effort and time you'll spend trying to quiet your mind. There will be some discipline and determination required, but the fruits will be sweet once you get through the bitter roots.
