The Benefits of Daily Meditation

Meditation is becoming increasingly popular in the west. The first reason for this is that people are looking for a way to cope with their increasingly stressful lifestyles and a rising urge to find themselves. Secondly, there is a strong emphasis on the practical aspect of meditation. It has sidelined the spiritual focus and the main goal of the activity, which is enlightenment.

Daily meditation has many benefits. Some of these benefits are immediately apparent, others require longer practice. With experience, most of these benefits can become an integral part of your personality and character, because a thing repeated many times becomes a habit.

Every piece of information carries some kind of energetic charge. It carries with it chronic stress, anxiety, a sense of competitiveness, a feeling that others are better, more beautiful, more capable, younger, thinner, the world is evil, unfair, and full of danger… On top of all this, there are endless lists of things to do, bills to pay, people to impress. All this quite literally burns out our brain.

Research by scientists has confirmed that there is one simple and effective remedy for this, which won’t cost you anything: meditation. As little as 10 minutes of daily meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels, improve clarity of thought, decision-making skills, and relieve anxiety.

Meditation Keeps The Brain Healthy

Just as exercise will make the body physically stronger, meditation strengthens our brain. Scientific studies have shown that daily meditation activates parts of the brain that are not used at all by people who do not meditate.

We know that the average person uses only 5-10% of their brain’s capacity. People who meditate use much larger areas than the average person. Meditation affects areas of the brain that potentiate intelligence, creativity, empathy, and happiness, among other things.

Scientists once stated that the human brain begins to slowly shrink starting around age 25-30, but this does not happen to people who meditate. Maybe for this reason very aged yogis not only never experience senile dementia, but are great masters and sages.

Meditation improves and recharges the brain

Meditation leads to a state of calm where regeneration occurs. Scientists have studied that 30 minutes of meditation brings us regeneration on the level of 3 hours of sleep! This explains why people who practice yoga and meditation need less sleep than people who do not.

The answer to fatigue is not sleeping itself, but regeneration. For example, a person who falls asleep after drinking alcohol indeed sleeps but does not regenerate.

Meditation is a state of stillness in which thoughts may arise, but the meditator does not engage his or her attention in them. He or she observes the thoughts as they flow. As a result, the mind gains distance from thoughts and manages them better. This translates into real-life benefits such as making better decisions, without anger or ill ambition.

It is a kind of awareness training for a healthy sense of perspective. We’re not trying to turn off thoughts and feelings. We learn how to observe them with equanimity, and without judgment. Eventually, we begin to understand them better and learn to manage them. In case you’ve been wondering why meditation is important, here’s your answer!

Notice and understand our body’s signals

When we are too busy and stressed, we may not notice the subtle manifestations of our bodies. For example, early symptoms such as tightness, irritation, and heaviness of the body can appear. When we ignore these symptoms, it can lead to much more severe body reactions such as high blood pressure, digestive problems, and many illnesses that are the result of long-term stress.

Meditation is all about self-awareness. It helps us become aware of what the body is trying to communicate about our health, emotions, and well-being. With mindfulness and awareness, we can prevent them right away before diseases develop.

Meditation literally changes our brain. Brain scans have shown that, when subjected to systematic meditation, the brain clearly increases activity in many of its areas that affect decision-making, emotional regulation, and memory. This is why meditation works.

Decades of intensive scientific research have shown conclusive evidence that through meditation we truly are able to change our bodies, and our minds, our lives, and the turnings of our fate. Our past, present, and future.
