Positive Effects of Meditation

The positive effects of meditation are astounding and certainly deserve your contemplation and consideration. Many successful business people, celebrities and sports professionals practice regularly and enjoy the positive effects of meditation. More and more businesses want optimistic, upbeat and helpful staff to join their companies encouraging staff to take part in helpful courses including meditation.

Research has scientifically proven that 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 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. One of the greatest positive effects of meditation is how it allows the body to distress. 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.

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 be free of constant worry, pressure and stress the positive effects of meditation can give you a life that is calm, peaceful, happy and relaxed.
Even ten minutes of meditation a day will help alleviate stress.

Some of the positive effects of meditation are:-

Reduces anxiety attacks as it lowers the levels of blood lactate.

Builds self confidence.

Increases serotonin which influences moods and behaviour. Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, headaches and insomnia.

Enhances energy, strength and vigour.

Helps keep blood pressure normal

Reduces stress and tension

Creates a state of deep relaxation and general feeling of wellbeing

Helps with P.M.T.

Increases concentration and strengthens the mind

Helps reduce heart disease

Helps with weight loss
           

If you practice regularly, the positive effects of meditation will promote a sense of calm and control, you’ll feel far more relaxed and happy. Your ability to concentrate will be greater. You won’t become stressed about things and you’ll feel more peaceful and relaxed about everything. One of the greatest positive effects of meditation is learning to go with the flow and things that used to irritate you before simply become insignificant.
