Meditation is about building inner peace that filters through chaos. It is not about escaping reality.

Meditation can be very useful in your daily life to confront situations, get some perspective, analyze your life, become aware of your real goals, look for solutions and take some time for yourself in the midst of everyday life turmoil. Here are some medication concepts that can be useful to your in your daily life:
1. Be present:
Live in the moment. This can be tricky considering how hectic and demanding work can be as well as other duties like family, savings and a mortgage. Sometimes it feels like we live in the future. Everything we do is for your children's education, to go up the career ladder, to save money to afford buying a house, saving money for when we retire, so we are not living for today.

Therefore, you need to start small. Anything can be a meditation. What you need to do is to focus all of your attention on the task at hand. Try to feel as much as you can while you are doing whatever it is you are. With practice, you start to experience more of your life, as you become aware of your senses and get immersed in your current experience.
With practice, you'll start to live more of your life this way—aware of all of your senses and immersed in your current experience. You'll find that the coffee tastes richer and it's quite beautiful how the light filters through that window in your office. Plus, when you complete important tasks, you'll be more focused.

 2. Breathe, then react:

Don't let emotions take a hold of you when life gets at its most chaotic. Before you react to any unwanted situation, opinion, criticism or advice, take a deep breath and remind yourself people's words are not about you. Their words come from their own ideas, emotions and thoughts, and at last those ideas stern from that person's belief system.
Once you become aware of this fact, you can listen to others without internalizing their criticism. Subsequently, you get to choose which words for you and the ones that don't. Alternatively, take a walk to cool down before you deal with the situation.
3. Only consume what benefits you:
This comprises anything: thoughts, foods, experiences, you name it. Let's say that an unpleasant thought comes to your mind. That's the time for you to be conscious about it and reject it. Just let it go or change it. This way you can keep a positive mind. If you keep doing this, at some point it will change your outlook and your experiences.
