Mental and Emotional Benefits of Meditation
Meditation has many benefits for mental health. It can relieve stress and create a sense of peace. It can help you to focus on the present moment and put negative or stressful situations into perspective. Studies have shown that meditation can also relieve the symptoms of depression. It also increases attention span and improves focus, which can be essential for success in today's society.
Physical Benefits of Meditation
Meditation can decrease pain. This has been shown in numerous studies. These include participants with chronic pain and terminal illness. One study used a functional MRI to measure changes in brain activity. Participants of one group went through a meditation workshop, while the control group did not. The meditation group showed greater activity in the areas of the brain that control pain and reported experiencing less pain.
Meditation can help with headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and insomnia as well. It is known to lower blood pressure, which may decrease your risk of related health problems.
How to Meditate
There are many ways to meditate. However, mindfulness and guided meditation are the most practiced forms in the West. Guided meditation is wonderful for beginners. It provides instructions, often asking you to visualize pleasant scenes and focus on your body sensations.
Mindfulness meditation can be performed anywhere with nothing needed but a quiet space. Sit comfortably, close your eyes, and focus on your breath. Allow thoughts to come and go without judgment.
