Top 10 Benefits Of Meditation

Meditation has been practiced by many different cultures for thousands of years. More recently, ancient Buddhist and Hindu meditation techniques have been incorporated into modern health treatments, including mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). A growing number of people use meditation for general wellness and to improve their quality of life.

 

Physical calm

According to the US National Institute of Health, meditation is effective in regulating breathing and heart rate, and has a calming effect on the nervous system.

 

Increased energy

Studies have shown that MBSR improves personal energy and can help prevent professional “burnout” (long-term exhaustion and boredom in the workplace).

 

Reduced anxiety

A 2012 meta-analysis by members of the American Psychological Association (APA) found meditation to be mentally relaxing among normal adults.

 

Improved mood

The analysis showed meditation to reduce negative emotions and neuroticism, while improving psychological well-being.

 

Enhanced cognition

It was even shown to assist in learning and boost memory.

 

 

Better sleep

A 2012 study by Britton et al. showed that cognitive behavioural therapy using mindfulness meditation improved the depth and efficacy of sleep.

 

Less need for sleep

A 2010 study by Kaul et al. found that meditation improves alertness and may decrease the amount of sleep needed.

 

A younger brain

Researchers from Yale, Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital observed 20 individuals performing Buddhist Insight meditation and found that grey matter increased in the subjects’ brains, suggesting that meditation may slow brain deterioration associated with ageing.

 

Pain reduction

MBSR has been shown to help reduce physical pain (Smith, et al.) and improve quality of life for individuals with fibromyalgia (Arcos-Carmona et al., 2011).

 

Cardiovascular health

In 2013, the American Heart Association published a study concluding that meditation, specifically Transcendental Meditation (TM), can moderately lower blood pressure.
