Everyone can relate to the feeling when everything in your life just becomes too much for you! You feel as if one more challenge comes your way, it could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, so to speak. This is when you need to give yourself a break, staying at meditation retreats: Time to clear your mind, rejuvenate, detoxify and reconnect with yourself and your spirituality.
The average person can't afford months of reflection traveling to India or living in a secluded monastery, but every person needs time out from daily thought and routines: Work stresses, family worries, financial concerns, relationship problems and ill health can all build up to breaking point, and where you were once a capable, easy going person, you turn into a ball of tension. When you are tense, signs begin to show through, such as being short tempered, irritable, snapping at people, winging and whining, complaining, arguing, worrying, losing sleep and becoming physically ill. Contemplation, reflection and relaxation is the way to wipe the slate clean, emerging from meditation retreats feeling ten years younger and ready to take on the world again!
