Top 5 Health Benefits of Meditation
1. Calms your Nervous System
Meditation is a very effective way to bring our brain waves into a deeply calming and relaxing alpha-wave state. In your stimulated, awakened state, your nervous system mostly operates in beta-wave. When entering the Alpha-wave state through meditation, you can experience a balance of emotion, positive thinking, and a calm clarity. Alpha states are said to promote creative thinking and problem-solving. In our current society, even small amounts of time spent in alpha-wave can have a big impact on overall mental health and mood.
2. Focuses Your Energy
Meditation has a way of silencing the noise of the mind. It frees up space for you to think clearly and rationally. Meditation can help you to see through the stressful preoccupations of your everyday life and realize what is truly important. The effects of clarity and focus can have a far-reaching and positive impact on so many other areas of your life, allowing relationships, friendships and careers to flourish.
3. Optimizes your Circulatory System
Meditation has proven benefits for your heart and blood pressure. When in a meditative state, the body's typical stress response is turned off. When in this relaxed state, our blood pressure lowers and our heart rate becomes optimal. Both of these processes allow for our body to receive improved levels of oxygenation and circulation.
4. Boost your Immune System
The immune system responds to our thoughts and emotions. There are positive links between changes in the brain during meditation and an increased immune response. Meditation has been known to increase the electrical impulses in the same areas of the brain that also effectively stimulate our immune system.
5. Meet your Future Tribe
Just as important as the many other health benefits that meditation has to offer, attending meditation classes gives you the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals. Meeting people who are as dedicated to improving their health and wellness can be an inspiring and motivating opportunity for all involved. Who knows, you may end up meeting your new best friend at your next meditation or yoga class!
