Meditation is one of the greatest Eastern practices that have begun to remain in Western culture. In fact, people from all over the world are taking benefiting from it, both in the mind and body. Why doesn’t everyone meditate? Perhaps not everyone is aware of all the incredible benefits, such as increased relaxation and a decrease in anxiety and depression. This article contains exhausting just a few of the many benefits of meditation and a set of instructions for starting your meditation.
Benefits of Meditation
Meditation has many health benefits. Interestingly, increased focusing ability allows those who suffer from chronic pain to ease the pain, deciding not to focus on it. It can help with various other health problems, including: anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, HIV / AIDS, and cancer. It can also improve the body’s immune system, which makes us less prone to disease.
Research also suggests that meditation can help reverse heart disease. In the journal Stroke, 60 African/Americans suffering from hardening of the arteries were asked to meditate for 6-9 months. Those meditations show a significant decrease in the thickness of their arterial walls. Those who did not meditate showed an increase in thickness. The findings were pretty dramatic. Mediation offers a potential 11 percent reduction in the risk of a heart attack and an 8–15 percent reduction in the risk of stroke.
Meditation is also good for our consciousness. This teaches us to better control our thoughts. This allows us to calm those cryptic negative thoughts that we may have from time to time.
There is no one way to meditate. As preparation for the process, begin to abandon any expectations that you may have. The first few times you simply sit comfortably on the ground, on a pillow or on a chair and try to calm your mind. You will probably have many thoughts that revolve around your head; for laundry, dinner, money, children, school, weekends, etc. Do not be afraid and not against your thoughts. They are completely natural. When they pass through your mind, notice them, take them and carefully concentrate your focus and attention back. You will receive a more detailed explanation at a time. The longer you maintain your meditation (not in one session, but throughout your life), the longer you can calm your thoughts, calm your mind and concentrate.
The hardest part of meditation is to sticks on it. Many people are discouraged because they believe that they “can’t do it.” For those who feel discouraged, leave your expectations. Without these expectations, no one appreciates your meditation. It is for you and for your own benefit. If you stick to this for a few months, you will get there, guaranteed.
