Benefits of a Fifteen Minute Meditation

Taking fifteen minutes each day to practice mindfulness through meditation has a range of benefits. From helping us to better relate to our emotions to improving the quality and ease of sleep, the implications of setting aside the time to be present are holistically nourishing. Mind, body, heart, and spirit all benefit from this sort of practice. The more consistently we practice, the more apparent the positive effects will be. Potential benefits of mindfulness practice include (but are not limited to):

  • Reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Greater control over thoughts and behaviours
  • Heightened capacity for focus and attention
  • Increased self-compassion and empathy
  • Lowered levels of stress hormone, cortisol
  • Improved immune system functioning
  • Reduction of pain perception and fatigue
