Meditation is well heard of, but the statistics regarding the benefits of meditation is astounding. Meditation is also highly misunderstood as people often picture a cross legged person with their hands on their knees sitting quietly and still for a half an hour. Meditation however, looks different for everyone because it is simply about putting your mind at ease into a calm state of mind. This can include things such as walking in nature, exercising, singing, being creative in an art, or listening to music/frequency. You need to find the one that works best for you, and implement it daily….. meditation is a form of self-care. Self-care is necessary, it is not selfish.
The power of the placebo effect has been studied for a long time now. It speaks to how our belief can create something and this proves how powerful our mind is. What is less well-known is the “nocebo” effect, when we believe something will not happen.
I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes regarding both the placebo and nocebo effects,
“IF you think you can, or think you can’t, you are right!”
