Everyone’s life is a series of decisions. Some seemly very small and others are life changing. The decisions you make are influenced by how you feel at the moment of being called upon to make that decision. If you are making a decision while feeling good you can be assured that the result will be better than one based on an ill mood. With that said is obvious that any activity, including meditation that improves your quality of thinking will have a positive effect on your entire life.

It is rare that a great decision is made from anger but it is often that a quiet moment gives birth to a creative thought that can influence your life for all time or at least for the near future. When you add up all of your decisions no matter whether they are big or small they all accumulate to be your life.

This one simple activity can literally change the world. Even if you are not a believer in metaphysical things on the whole there is no denying the benefits of meditation. There are many activities that we are prevented from doing because they either cost too much or take up too much time. The act of meditation costs nothing unless you do not participate and it can take as little as 20 minutes per day. There is also no complicated learning curve.
