4 Steps for Gym With Meditation

In addition, we think a person doing meditation should sit alone closing his eyes rather doing any other activity.
Easy Meditation Tips
But the fact is meditation and spirituality are ingrained in our day-to-day life. Meditation is nothing but creating the awareness about your body, mind and emotions. For creating that awareness it is not mandatory for one to be in a particular state of mind performing some rituals. Hence, one can be aware of oneself without any extra efforts.
Different Stages of Intelligence
In the earlier era, the humanity was confined to the perspective of physical power known as a physical quotient. It means that more the physical power, stronger the human is. To be precise it is referring to the era of primitive society. Then as the society evolved the intellect took the upper hand. The focus was now more on intelligence quotient (IQ). All the organizations test IQ and take a decision on the person’s intelligence. More the IQ, perception is better in the person.
As the society evolved more, thinking tanks realized that only IQ is not sufficient. The more important parameter is the EQ means emotional quotient. The emotional body is much stronger than the mental body. When emotions like anger, anxiety, ecstasy disgust etc. prevail then the mental body goes aside.
Therefore, it is clear that though EQ plays a very important role it is the spirituality which supersedes everything. It is the spirituality quotient what we call SQ is the most important parameter. It is impossible for a person to have good SQ but low EQ and IQ. In other words, SQ is the master. SQ controls PQ, IQ, and EQ.
SQ is the connection with the universal intelligence and nobody is bigger than the universal intelligence. Hence the importance of SQ is to make oneself come out of the myths associated with spirituality and meditation. One can be meditative and have a spiritual mind when they are doing their routine work or doing work out in a gym.
