Top 5 benefits of meditation

  1. 1. Top 5 Benefits of Meditation By Daniel Harper
  2. 2. Meditation is an ancient practice that is done by individuals who seek enlightenment, inner peace, and freedomfrom stress. There are different ways on how to meditate but they all lead to the same thing – a better you.Below are the top five benefits that meditation can offer to your life.1. Improves cardiovascular health. When a person meditates, the body goes into a relaxed state which in turnlowers your heart rate and blood pressure. It also improves circulation and the steady breathing makes sure thatyour whole body receives oxygen. All of these improve cardiovascular health.2. Removes fear. People who have certain fears or phobias may find meditation as a way to cure it, if not, atleast lessen the effect. Dealing with scary thoughts in a relaxed state makes it easier for an individual to assesshis feelings so that he can deal with it accordingly.
  3. 3. 3. Makes you happier. People who meditate regularly tend to be happier than those who don’t. This isbecause meditation has physiological effects such as an increase in serotonin levels in the body that puts you ina good mood and allows a better perspective of one’s image which increase self-esteem and self-confidence.This also removes depression and any signs of sadness.4. Increases creativity. It was observed that people who come up with the brightest of ideas includemeditation in their everyday routine. When a person meditates, it doesn’t actually mean that the mind stopsworking, but it actually makes the mind and spirit more active and more open. It then allows more inspirationwhich sparks creativity and bright ideas.
  4. 4. 5. Richer life. When a person enters a meditative state, it naturally opens the mind, body and spirit, which inturn makes the whole person more sensitive to stimulus. First, the mind will be able to absorb moreinformation which can improve his intelligence. Second, his body will be more in harmony with itself andmore attuned to its surroundings. Lastly, his spirit will be more in tune to positive experiences which in turnmakes him a more positive individual.Judging from the benefits mentioned above, I can say that meditation is more than just an activity or a simpleexercise. Meditation is like a door to a world of good experiences which makes you enjoy your life more. So ifyou haven’t considered meditating regularly, then I suggest that you start right away. “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.” ~Buddha Are you really serious about becoming healthy mind, body and spirit and change your life once and for all!
