If you want to learn how to cope with stress and problems, not to succumb to negative emotions, to live in harmony with the world around you and with yourself, meditation will help you.
Meditation does not mean attachment to any religion.
It is a technique to help eliminate anxiety, reduce anxiety, and develop our potential.
1. Changes the structure of the brain
Previously, it was believed that the human brain begins to degrade after thirty years, but research has refuted this fact. Scientists have found that even short-term, but regular meditation practice changes the structure of the brain. At the same time, the gray matter increases, absent-mindedness is eliminated, and memory improves.
2. Stabilizes the emotional state
The modern inhabitant of the metropolis is constantly in conditions of incessant anxiety and stress. To reduce the negative impact of these factors on our emotional health, we turn to specialists and take medications. However, meditation practice allows us to cope with these problems without the intervention of psychotherapists. Meditation reduces anxiety, relieves anxiety and anger, increases stress resistance, and helps to achieve inner balance.
3. Reduces the risk of heart disease
Scientists from the University of Wisconsin conducted a study that involved two groups of patients with cardiovascular disease. The first group was asked to attend classes on a healthy lifestyle, and the second - to practice meditation 2 times a day. After 9 years, researchers found that in the meditation group, the number of deaths decreased by 48% compared to the other group. Meditation has been found to reduce high blood pressure, improve sleep quality, and strengthen the immune system.
4. Improves breathing
The meaning of conscious breathing practice is to saturate the cells of the body with oxygen. The metabolism is accelerated, toxins and toxins are removed. The practice of breathing promotes the activation of the pineal gland. During the practice, we constantly return our attention to the breath and feel how our scattered energies are coming together. This state of mind brings exceptional peace.
5. Reduces pain
Research shows that people who practice mindfulness meditation are able to target areas of the brain responsible for pain relief. During meditation, the brain stimulates the production of endorphins - natural pain blockers.
You can start meditation from two minutes a day, gradually increasing the duration to 15-20 minutes. Experienced practitioners meditate for several hours, but the rhythm of life in cities does not give us such an opportunity. To improve the quality of our life, 20 minutes will be enough for us, but daily practice. Enjoy meditation and your life will change for the better.
