Say Yes to Meditation

Postby ernestelliott on Fri Mar 16, 2012 12:30 pm

Meditation is the best way to get relief from stress and depression achieving the inner Peace. Meditation as a practice is an effort to stop the mind from its natural tendency to weave thoughts. In the practice of meditation, you try to relax and then try to focus your mind on a divine form, a sacred sound or a word or phrase as mantra, or you focus on your physical body, breath or thoughts. Meditation is just sitting with your own mind for a while.

Research shows that meditation can significantly reduce the pain of certain chronic conditions and stress. Meditation creates the exact opposite physiological state of what the human stress response produces. Those who meditate experience decreased blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and oxygen consumption, along with increased intensity of alpha, theta, and delta brainwaves. This indicates that meditation can reduce the stress caused by chronic pain and can improve overall mood levels. Always use an Herbal Incense while Meditating.

I agree with you Ernestelliott. Meditation is the best method to adopt for reducing stress and anxiety.

Agree with Ernestelliott !!

Meditation stimulates parasympathetic nervous system, or the branch of peripheral nervous system that helps the body return to a calm, relaxed state after the threat of danger, or even daily stress, has passed.
When this branch is activated, the body can naturally rejuvenate, repair, and rebuild itself.
It also clears the mind for better quality sleep.
It Boosts the immune system by slowing the production of the stress hormone cortisol.

Great insight Ernestelliott!

Thank you for sharing this information.

I also agree with this. Meditation really do have a lot of benefits. It's been proven that mediation can alleviate anxiety and stress. It can also significantly reduce the chance of burnout. I've been doing Yoga for quite some time now and it helped me relax and sleep better. It's really a recommendable activity.

I've never been an enthusiast of meditation until I found great yoga school with the good teacher. Finally, someone told me how to breathe and suddenly meditation became much easier. Also there is one article about yoga helping relaxation, it is not only for people struggling with addiction but also for people who are stressed and have too many things in mind.

Thanks for sharing. I have read a lot of benefits about meditation. I have always wanted to try it out but I could never really find the time. I guess early in the morning is the best time to meditate.
