Meditation is something very special towards which people turn to when they feel the need of some kind of a spiritual connection. One of the big challenges for people when it comes to meditation is having enough time and having a quiet place and, furthermore, not being disturbed by daily issues.

Seniors, however, tend to be more wealthy than most people and therefore their apartment or house tends to be in a much nicer and quieter area. This allows having a peace of mind and less noise pollution and disturbance. Not only it is more pleasant to live in such an environment, but it is also much easier to practice meditation.
Senior’s Maturity Gives Stability
Next, seniors have already reached many goals and climbed many mountains over their lifetime, so they are not in such a rush as younger people. This gives a certain stability and calmness and control over emotions, which are all critical to have when practicing meditation.
Seniors’ Life Stage is Further From Disturbances
Furthermore, when there are daily engagements at work as well as with friends and family, daily problems and duties, then all of this stress keeps the mind busy and disturbed and inhibits meditation. However, seniors tend to have a much calmer and mature life and would be better able to calm and control their mind from jumping around problem to problem.
