Concentration is at the core of all types of meditation. When you meditate you can reach a state of deep peace because your mind becomes tranquil and silent, yet totally alert. According to scientific research, meditation is one of the most effective ways to reduce stress. Details about meditation benefits on your mind and body are below.

Physical- The physiology of your body changes because every cell becomes energized. The energy is prana and it causes the following:

  • Lower blood pressure.
  • Less anxiety.
  • Tension-related pain reduction.
  • An increased Serotonin level that improves your mood.
  • An improved immune system.

Mental- Meditation brings your brainwave pattern into an Alpha state. This state bolsters healing. The other benefits are:

  • Improved emotional stability.
  • Sharper intuition.
  • Improved powers of empathy.
  • Elimination of mental distractions.

Spiritual- By learning meditation you can discover a world in which you can remove negativity. The goal is to replace negative thoughts with positive actions and thoughts to reach enlightenment. The other benefits are:

  • Personal transformation.
  • An increase in your capacity to love.
  • Becoming one with the universe.

The human mind is often unruly and jostled with repetitive thoughts. Meditating can help you find clarity and peacefulness. When you meditate at home choose a special quiet place where you feel comfortable. Stay focused by paying soft attention to that which you place in the center of awareness. Sit with your spine up and count your breath. Start with 10 minute sessions and gradually increase the time to 25 minutes.
