// ✨ Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts. ✨
BENEFITS TO MEDITATION:
REDUCES STRESS: Many styles of meditation can help reduce stress. Meditation can also reduce symptoms in people with stress-triggered medical conditions.
CONTROLS ANXIETY: Habitual meditation helps reduce anxiety and anxiety-related mental health issues like social anxiety, phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviors.
PROMOTES EMOTIONAL HEALTH: Some forms of meditation can improve depression and create a more positive outlook on life. Research shows that maintaining an ongoing habit of meditation may help you maintain these benefits long term.
ENHANCES SELF AWARENESS: Self-inquiry and related styles of meditation can help you "know yourself." This can be a starting point for making other positive changes.
LENGTHENS ATTENTION SPAN: Several types of meditation may build your ability to redirect and maintain attention. As little as four days of meditation may have an effect.
REDUCES AGE-RELATED MEMORY LOSS: The improved focus you can gain through regular meditation may increase memory and mental clarity. These benefits can help fight age-related memory loss and dementia.
IMPROVES SLEEP: A variety of meditation techniques can help you relax and control the "runaway" thoughts that can interfere with sleep. This can shorten the time it takes to fall asleep and increase sleep quality.
HELPS CONTROL PAIN: Meditation can diminish the perception of pain in the brain. This may help treat chronic pain when used as a supplement to medical care or physical therapy.
DECREASES BLOOD PRESSURE: Blood pressure decreases not only during meditation, but also over time in individuals who meditate regularly. This can reduce strain on the heart and arteries, helping prevent heart disease.
