7 Physical Benefits of Meditation
I started my meditation practice over 25 years ago to better manage stress and anxiety. Before I’d learned a technique to quiet my mind, I was an emotional mess. I didn’t know how to slow my thoughts down, and spent most of my waking hours feeling panicked and overwhelmed. Although, like most working people today, I did have way too much on my plate (family, business, community activities and the need to stay fit), I wasn’t even sure how to set priorities. I always felt like I was letting someone down, including myself.
Once I started meditating I learned to train my mind to reach greater states of relaxation and concentration. A regular schedule of meditation in my life has taken patience and practice, but I do believe it has been the single most valuable daily ritual I give myself. Meditation has been used around the world for many years due to the many physical, mental, and emotional benefits it brings. Below I want to share with you some of the researched benefits of this ancient and sacred practice.
7 PHYSICAL BENEFITS OF MEDITATION
Stress creates toxins in our body, but meditation has the power to help dispose of them.
Too much cholesterol will endanger our health. Through meditation our body can reduce the amount of harmful cholesterol present.
RELAXES MUSCLES AND INCREASES FLEXIBILITY
Meditation helps muscles to release tension allowing for more freedom in movement, which can also reduce the risk of serious injury after a fall or accident.
STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Creating stronger connections between the brain and body with meditation increases immune function.
Often the strengthened connection of the brain and body will allow the body and conscious mind to relax and sleep.
Meditation helps to open and relax the arterial walls, allowing for improved circulation.
INCREASES ENERGY LEVELS
By facilitating the above benefits, meditation also helps increase energy levels.
I have committed my life to sharing with the world all of my experiences with meditation and its benefits. SoulTranSync is the culmination of this passion. Sharing with you how easy it can be to begin a life altering experience including Ho’oponopono is my gift to the world. I believe care and compassion physically and mentally is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
