Meditation is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and more and more doctors are encouraging patients to practice meditation to cure smoking and many stress related illnesses. Everyday most of us experience stress in many different ways and I believe many people are simply not aware of how much stress we actually hold on to. Normally life threatening situations trigger off the stress response which enables us to act without contemplation and deliberation and survive intense situations using fast reflexes. When our bodies are exposed to a sudden threat we respond with the characteristic fight or flight reaction which is known as an adrenaline rush. When adrenaline and other hormones are released from the adrenal glands the pulse races, blood pressure increases, our breathing becomes faster and the blood flow to the muscles increases. If we are in extreme danger these reactions are of great assistance to us. We have inherited this survival response from our ancestors who faced many life threatening situations every day. The same response is now triggered in our daily lives when we are in a traffic hold up or someone irritates us at work or we simply break a cup.
If we do not confront the situation (and many are beyond our control) we end up being in a permanent state of stress. When people are in this state they tend to light a cigarette more often. For people who want to stop smoking meditation is extremely valuable because one of the most important positive effects of meditation is how it releases stress from our bodies. Meditation practiced regularly will lead you to a deeper level of relaxation and contemplation. If you want to stop smoking meditation is the key. Until you stop smoking meditation can give you a life that is calm, peaceful, happy and relaxed.
