One of the reasons is simply because they are not taking the time to get in touch with the essence of their being.
Some people are living day to day through the hustle and bustle of life in reactionary mode.
Something happens, the person simply reacts rather than taking time to respond appropriately.
Often this can simply inflame the situation more and then the person that simply reacted ends up feeling worse than they did before.
But what if you felt more calm and aware of the moment.
More in touch with how you really feel about what is going on rather than feeling that you do not have much control of your emotions and how you react.
With meditation you will be more in the now.
It is like having a greater emotional intelligence.
Everything feels more clear and easy to appreciate than before.
You can appreciate pleasant experiences to a greater extent than you normally would as you learn how to feel the experience in more intelligent and more open way.
If you are living your life constantly feeling rushed, stressed anxious or some other form of emotional disquiet you are probably missing those little moments and those experiences that make life feel good, fresh and exciting.
So if you are feeling emotionally stuck, use meditation to help you learn to live in the now.
There is no better time to learn to live with inner peace and in the now than today.
