The Merriam-Webster dictionary has been telling us what words mean since 1828. That means their dictionary is pretty reliable. We can trust them to give us the straight dope when we’re looking to define the word “drama.” Here’s what they have to say:
Drama – noun – “a state, situation, or series of events involving interesting or intense conflict of forces.”
You probably have your own definition of the word. Suffice it to say that most of us would like less drama in our lives. One way you can do that is by meditating regularly.
How Meditation Can Prevent Drama
Did you know that you are either predisposed to drama or against it? Dramatic people don’t want to hear this. Even though they are a constant source of negativity and drama, they won’t admit this fact to themselves or others.
Their mental and emotional state of being is conducive to causing drama.
Fortunately, this is a mindset that can be changed. People who experience high levels of stress and have a hectic, constantly busy lifestyle are more conducive to finding themselves in dramatic situations. Drop stress and anxiety levels, and you create a calmer, more peaceful mind.
This naturally means a person is less likely to create drama. It also means an emotional balance that doesn’t respond negatively when drama is experienced.
Meditate regularly to reach this path of mental wellness and peace of mind.
A Simple Meditation Primer for Beginners
Meditation is not difficult. Anyone can do it. By the way, less drama in your life is only one of many significant benefits meditation delivers. Eastern cultures have used meditation for thousands of years for its anti-aging benefits. There are more mental and physical health benefits this simple practice can also give you.
Here’s all you need to do.
Find a quiet spot with few distractions. Get comfortable, either sitting or lying down. Close your eyes and clear your mind. Breathe naturally and normally. Don’t try to control your breathing. Just experience it.
Put all your attention on the breathing process. Understand what you’re feeling in your body as you breathe in and out. If your mind wanders, just drive yourself back to a mentally clear state.
Do this for a few minutes each day. You will instantly find yourself stressing out less and experiencing less drama. You also lower your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and other stress-related conditions.
