Meditation is a practice that helps one create balance in our life; it will help us focus mentally, calms our stress and tensions, and promotes a more balanced state physically. We achieve this by the practice of focusing your attention to help you feel calm and give you a clear awareness about your life. Eastern philosophies have recognized the health benefits of meditation for thousands of years. Meditation is now widely practiced in the West, with the belief that it has positive effects on health.
Researchers say that meditation works at least in part by lowering your body’s responsiveness to the stress hormone norepinephrine.
In this day and age of fast living and stress related illnesses, we need to find something that will bring a more balanced relaxed rhythm into our lives. This can be done by meditation, a simple exercises, when practiced on a regular basis, and perfected, will promote in your life, clarity understanding and a calm sense of being.
Many healthy people use meditation as a way to relax the body and reduce stress. But meditation may also be useful if you have a medical disease or condition, especially one that may be worsened by stress. Scientific research about the benefits of meditation is continuing, and the results are mixed.
A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation can help you to overcome your stress and find some inner peace and balance. Meditation can be practiced any time of the day, but it is recommended that there be a routine such as early morning or night sessions. The reason for this is we are very habitual creatures and by creating a routine for the mind, it is taught that at a certain time of day is when the ego mind has to move aside and allow the inner-self or subconscious mind to come forward.
Engaging in a meaningful relationship with your own mind and training it to perform optimally, yields a multitude of health benefits for the body and soul.
