Don’t you think that many people face stressful lives? We’re always worried about something. Work, studies, family, relationships… there are many different things that trigger our anxiety levels. Being always worried about so many issues can make us be even more susceptible to the less-meaningful-everyday-problems. And we finally end up stressed because of everything, and we feel irritated even for issues that we imagine coming.

Meditating on a daily basis can be a good tool to keep our mind still when we’re obsessed with problems. It’s something that I’ve proved myself and that still helps me. The practice of meditation develops our confidence to:
- Trust ourselves: change starts within us. If we let problems overtake us, we won’t be able to face them. Trusting yourself is the first step you must take to understand that you can deal all your challenges successfully.
- Trust others: many times, our issues involve other people. Learning to be patient and confident with others is also an essential part of confronting obstacles.
- Trust that things will be all right: sometimes the solution to our issues is not in our hands, nor in others’ hands. But we must keep positive and believe that nothing lasts forever, even if we feel we’re in the middle of the worst situation ever.
Meditation helps us to trust ourselves, once we learn to do this, we tend to trust others more, and when we have reached this level of confidence, we will always be confident that problems have always a solution.
