How do you begin your day and how does it end? If you analyze these two questions at the end of each day, you might be disappointed while recalling each incident that happened during the day. There must have been many incidents where you were angry, embarrassed, stressed or underwent emotional problems which might have led to medical conditions such as chronic headache, back pain or increased blood pressure. There must have been situations where you had difficulties in making decisions. This is a common problem every person experiences in his or her daily life. The only remedy to overcome these problems is to practice meditation, especially in the morning. People with busy lifestyles may not be able to spend lot of time on meditation in the morning. In that case, spare at least five minutes for meditation to live a better day without stress and worries.

This could be new to lot of people, since many are not aware of meditation and its benefits. Practicing meditation for at least five minutes a day can help you to have a stress free day. Most people believe meditation is a long process and they have to spend hours on a single session. But this is not completely true. There are many types of meditation which can be practiced for smaller sessions. Try this effective 5 minute meditation, even if you only try it once, and see what the effect is.
Chakra meditation is the most ideal way to have a short meditation session. The chakra meditation helps to focus on a particular problem that you experience on a daily basis. There are a couple of steps in this meditation technique that can be performed quickly without spending too much time. The meditation process will increase your concentration and help to focus on issues carefully, which would result in making positive and effective decisions.
Chakra meditation is known to clear the mind from all kinds of emotional problems and worries, which gives you a positive perspective on every incident that happens in the day. Since chakra meditation focuses on various asanas (body parts) the body will also feel relieved from any tensions from the previous day, feeling refreshed instantly. Finally, it helps to reduce and prevent aches. Following and practicing chakra meditation in the morning, will help to begin a day with increased self-confidence, complete mind clarity and a positive perspective on life, until you go to sleep at night.
Mediation has the ability to improve various health conditions and enhance the clarity of mind. It has the power to give you a better outlook on life. The benefits of meditation will bring you numerous advantages, such as partial and complete relief from emotional problems like stress, anxiety, depression and anger.

When you are emotionally clear and strong, you gain the power and confidence to make effective and powerful decisions even in the toughest situations during the day. With enhanced emotional strength, various health conditions like high blood pressure, body pain - especially, back and neck pain - and heart conditions can be reduced (for people with medical conditions) and prevented (for people without medical  conditions). Celebrities practice meditation to experience the benefits of meditation for a better life.
