Physical Benefits of Meditation

With meditation every cell in the body is filled with more energy. This result in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of energy in the body increases. Meditation may physically change the brain and body and could potentially help to improve many health problems and promote healthy behaviors.

Physical benefits of meditation are:

  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Helps to reduces risk of heart diseases and stroke
  • Decreases any tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems
  • Greater energy and vitality.
  • Reduces risk of Alzheimer’s and premature death
  • Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior
  • Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energy
  • Stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system, or the branch of your peripheral nervous system that helps your body return to a calm, relaxed state after the threat of danger, or even daily stress, has passed. When this branch is activated, your body can naturally rejuvenate, repair, and rebuild itself.
  • Helps to clear your mind for better quality sleep.
  • Boosts your immune system by slowing the production of the stress hormone cortisol.
  • Help reduce the impact of physical and emotional pain.

Practicing meditation on a daily basis can bring about huge changes in your body. Your practice can be as long or as short as you would like, but try to take the time to meditate every day. Find a place that is comfortable for you to meditate. Some people use a quiet space at home or in the office. You can meditate outside in nature as well. Look for a place that is inviting and calm and make that your spot. So, make it your habit to meditate because there’s nothing you can do that can have such a positive effect on your life with so little time and effort.
