What are some of the reasons to take up Meditation?

Meditation can help deal with Stress and Negative Emotions

Multiple studies have demonstrated that Meditation can help reduce levels of depression and anxiety, along with helping people tolerate pain.

Meditation could boost positive skills like memory and awareness

People that meditate have unique brains with well-developed areas that connect to the mastery awareness of emotion control.  Such brains are more likely to meditate in the first place.   Research has shown before and after taking up meditation the changes in the participants have better connection to memory, self-awareness and perspective.

Meditation helps you Get Along with Others

A more developed meditative brain shows regions of the brain associated with empathy are more developed.  Mediation promotes high levels of alpha brain waves which are associated with a state of wakeful relaxation.  Meditation helps to reduce negative moods and feelings toward anger, tension and sadness.

Meditation can take just weeks can change your brain.

An eight-week study of participants had denser brain tissue in areas connected to learning, emotion regulation, and memory processing.  They showed decreased amounts of grey matter in parts of the amygdala, a brain area connected to fear and stress. They write that in this case, participants who reduced their stress response the most were the ones that showed the biggest decrease in grey matter in this area of the brain.

Meditation is good for your body and heart

Meditation has been connected to decreased blood pressureand a more variable heart rate — which is a good thing, meaning your body can better regulate blood flow depending on how much oxygen you need at the time. Meditation could reduce the levels of stress hormones that can cause inflammation and other physical problems.

There are also signs that meditation can help boost your immune system — or at least help ward off the flu.

In a study research, two groups of people had one group complete an eight-week meditation course. At the end of the eight weeks, the people in the meditation group showed increased left-side brain activity. At that point, the researchers injected both groups with the flu vaccine. The meditators had a stronger immune response (their bodies produced more flu-fighting antibodies), and the higher the level of left-brain activity in general, the greater the immune response.

Meditation may help prevent genetic damage

One study showed that cancer survivors completed a meditation program showed increased telomere length — telomeres are protein complexes that protect our genes, and shortened telomeres have been linked to various diseases. Researchers say that the possible mechanism for this is that reducing stress could help certain enzymes that lengthen telomeres, though more research in more diverse populations is needed.

As the video below explains, meditation can’t take the place of taking care of yourself — so you should keep going to the doctor, getting exercise, and eating vegetables. It’s also worth noting that much of this research is still preliminary as we learn more about the brain and how it responds to different types of activity, our perspective on how all this works could change.

Why Everyone Should Meditate

Each time we meditate, we change our brain.  We are creating new neural pathways in the brain. Neural pathways are like apps that take us directly to a place of rest and stillness with less effort and with more success each time we meditate.  Our system adapts to a new place of rest and stillness, just as it adopts a pattern of being stressed easily, or going into states of anxiety easily.  Neural pathways re-wire your brain and subconscious patterns. We develop a greater ability to focus inwardly, which enhances the outer focus. Because there less stress in the system, our immune system is strengthened, and thus we experience much improved health.

We rest deeply during these sessions, allowing energy levels to be replenished.  Meditation assists the mind to find a place of clarity, to feel rested and let past behavioral traits fall away.  With each meditation practice you strengthen the tools to work well, concentrate and make positive decisions in both your personal and work life.

With a calm mind, you give yourself the gift of experiencing real joy as the world is viewed from a completely different perspective.
