What Can Meditation Do For You?
Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body. It’s a practice that can benefit EVERYBODY, but it can often feel challenging or intimidating for people who are trying it for the first time. That’s why I’m offering a special email series to help guide you through the basics.
Meditation not only benefits your mental health but has been proven to improve aspects of your physical health as well. There are thousands of studies documenting the positive impacts of mindfulness and meditation. Mental impacts include increased focus, compassion, and a sense of calm. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University found that meditation can help to ease the psychological symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain related to stress.
Practicing meditation helps to ease stress by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and counteracting stress hormones. In fact, people who meditate regularly have learned to condition their bodies to relax on demand, which helps manage stress more directly.
