It seems like it should almost be common knowledge that meditation has direct and beneficial physiological effects and vast health benefits, yet there are still many who either don’t know this, pretend it’s not validated by science, or deny its efficacy in their own lives. This concept is nothing new, nor is the scientific proof of it a new trend. In an scientific study referenced from the 1970s it was noted that “During meditation, oxygen consumption and heart rate decreased, skin resistance increased, and the electroencephalogram showed specific changes in certain frequencies.”
Have YOU woken up to the benefits of meditation in your own life?
Want some easy tips on how to get started?
- Set dates on your calendar for time to meditate so that it becomes a priority
- Start with noticing your breath and gently increasing the length of the inhale and exhale over a few minutes.
- DON’T try to clear your mind! Just notice what it is you are thinking about and then go back to observing your breath
- Make your sitting space as comfortable as possible so it’s inviting
- Repeat again each day!
