The mind is the source of all actions and reactions. To draw the maximum benefits from any activity, the mind needs to be in sync with body. But it is not easy to keep mind and body in sync. The mind capacity to move fast often works against it and makes it vulnerable to all kinds of distractions. So to keep your mind and body in sync, you need to train your mind to be here and now.
Live in the Present Moment
To keep mind and body in sync is to live in the present moment; having undivided concentration on activity you are doing right now and here. When your mind and body are well-synchronized, you remain alert all the time and enjoy each moment of life. You start to make use of your full potential due to improved concentration on present moment and that in turn increases your efficiency.
On the other hand, if your mind and body are not well tuned, it becomes difficult for you to concentrate on the present moment and the chances to make mistakes get increased, which invites problems for you. As your mind is not here and now, you do not respond to immediate situations with accuracy, so trouble begins to mount. As a result, you feel frustrated and life becomes a bit boring.
Improve Your Level of Concentration
To make your mind and body well synchronized, you need to improve your level of concentration in the present moment by focusing on the job at hand and detaching yourself from the past and future moment. When you consciously practice concentration and detachment simultaneously, your mind and body soon get synchronized.
Further, always keep in mind, past is gone. There is no point to brooding over it. You cannot go in past and eliminate the situation which is causing pain in the present moment. The only use of past moment is to learn the required lessons so that you do not repeat the same mistakes again. As far as future is concerned, it is good to have some planning about it but not to be worried about it. So keep your attention totally dedicated to planned course of actions to realize the certain goal in the future with enhanced knowledge from the past to make your mind and body well synchronized.
To conclude, you live your life in the present moment, and it can be best enjoyed when mind and body are in sync. Meditation helps in synchronization of mind and body in present moment. When the body falls in line of the mind, you remain naturally relaxed, alert, open and aware. You respond to the situations in the best possible way to get the maximum benefit out of it and that in turn leads you to realize your goal sooner and smoothly. So keep your mind and body in sync to enjoy the benefit of life and make it enriching.
