Benefits of Meditation

Daily meditation helps stop our mind chatter.  It provides mental, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being.  Studies show that individuals who meditate regularly live happier and healthier lives.  Most importantly, meditation on a regular basis reduces and even reverses disease of all types, including cancer.

The benefits don't stop there, because meditation also positively affects our body’s natural chemistry.  Studies also show that meditation has the power to significantly increase the production of several euphoric chemicals in our mind and body, which in turn help stabilize mood disorders, dramatically boost our memory, alleviate depression, and reduce stress.  Meditation also helps increase the production of serotonin in our brains, which positively influences our mood and behavior.

So give yourself the gift of healing, by starting each day with a meditation.  Please don’t think you have to be an expert to achieve a deep meditative state from the beginning.  Just give yourself a chance, by first dedicating 15 minutes to half an hour a day to sit in a quiet place, and second close your eyes and focus on your breathing or some relaxing new age music.  It seems difficult at first but if you stick to that routine I promise you, you will soon notice yourself going deeper into the meditative state a lot quicker and see the wonderful benefits meditation provides.
