Meditation is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we are doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
This practice is an effective way to connect mind & body while improving attention and self-awareness, which promotes a healthier and happier life. It can be done by anyone, of any age, regardless of his or her practice level, so that a state of calm and relaxation may be achieved.
These are a few of science-based benefits of meditation: controls anxiety and depression, reduces stress and fear, increases self-confidence and positive emotion, enhances self-awareness and relaxation, helps ignore distractions, lengthens attention span, helps manage ADHD, better sleep, increases memory retention and recall, improves cognitive skills and creative thinking, lessens worries and impassivity, reduces blood pressure, improves breathing and heart rates, increases immune function, and hundreds more.
Therefore, meditation is one of the best ways to enhance mind and brain abilities. With a calm, relaxed and focused mind one can stay in the moment rather than worried about results.
