Benefits of Meditation
A life changing experience.
Meditation can have an impact on the entire body. Just by starting with a few minutes a day, you will find a positive change in your physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
In our world it's estimated that 350 million people suffer from depression and 40 million suffer from anxiety. Meditation can be a long lasting, consistent treatment option for depression and anxiety. A study from the University of California concluded that meditation decreased overthinking and sabotaging beliefs and thoughts. These studies have even shown that it can be just as helpful for some people as antidepressants or at least make them much more effective in the long run.
According to a study at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, meditation reduces the grey matter density in areas of the brain related with anxiety and stress. Also, a study at Harvard expanded on this by showing that meditation increased the grey area in the brain associated with learning, memory, and emotion regulation.
One of the immediate things you might experience with meditation is how it improves your focus, attention, and ability to work under stress. It doesn't take very much time on a daily basis either, you can start with just 5 minutes a day. This act of controlling the mind gives you mental strength, resilience, and emotional intelligence. It can help us have a clearer mind to process information and better decision making skills. Meditation increases the amounts of gratification (the folding of the cortex in the brain) which research has shown helps with our ability to process information faster.
There are psychical side effects as well that drastically make a difference in our lives. Pain relief has also been a side effect of meditation practice. It can drastically reduce pain intensity and pain unpleasantness. Since meditation helps with stress, it is no wonder that it can help reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease. It also can reduce blood pressure and help keep the body in a state of homeostasis.
In today's world we get caught up in the need to be busy and have a tough time letting go of the guilt with taking the time to relax. Meditation helps bring our awareness to our life, our bodies, and mindsets and begins to slow us down enough to notice the here and now. This opens up so many doors for us and allows us to have choices to change and to live more in line with our hearts.
