Meditation

Personalized wellness, with a hint of luxury.

Meditation is known as the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/ spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth. In practice, meditation involves concentrated focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling.

The Huge Health Benefits Of Meditation

Though skepticism about meditation is popular, especially in western countries, many medicinal practices now acknowledge its healing benefits. Practicing meditation can lower stress and anxiety, and reduce the risk of stroke and diseases related to high blood pressure. It can also contribute to clearer skin and promote healing in other organs, probably due to the influence emotions can have on patient recovery.

Lower Your Stress

Meditation requires you to calm down and clear your mind. While this may sound mundane, studies show that this practice can lower stress and anxiety as people slowly forget their complex worries for a while. Doing this regularly helps to build up a tolerance to high-stress situations that can activate the sympathetic nervous system or your panic reflex. By practicing clear-mindedness, you are more likely to think clearly and deal with emergencies rationally.

Less Likely To Have Heart Attacks And Similar Diseases

The lowered stress of people who practice meditation also has some clear benefits for the cardiovascular system. Increased stress causes blood vessels to shrink, and the heart to beat faster. Over time this increased blood pressure can shorten your life, damaging your arteries and your organs due to the increased workload. While people need a well-functioning flight or fight response, remaining in this hyper-aware state due to stress too long has many negative effects.

Promotes Healing

And decreasing the workload on the body is an often used and well-known practice in medicine to help promote healing elsewhere. The skin, for example, still baffles doctors as it tends to heal better for patients who are happier and more emotionally satisfied. Stress is known to inhibit healing, but meditation helps a healthy mind to assert itself, and thereby improve conditions like psoriasis by allowing the mind and body to work in tandem towards healing your organs.

The full effects of meditation might not be fully understood yet, but its ability to promote a healthy lifestyle is undeniable. The risk of high blood pressure and stress or anxiety related diseases goes down in regular practitioners of meditation. Studies report clearer and more determined decision making in those who use meditation to focus. And the body is sometimes able to recover more successfully because meditators can put their worries aside at critical times.
