We keep hearing about how good meditation is for us, so here’s a post to summarise all those numerous benefits…

Meditation is good for your health:

  • lowers blood pressure
  • improves cardiovascular health
  • strengthens the immune system
  • improves concentration
  • reduces stress
  • reduces emotional distress
  • slows aging
  • increases happiness

Meditation is also good for your brain:

“meditating for only 8 weeks actually significantly changed the brain’s grey matter — a major part of the central nervous system that is associated with processing information, as well as providing nutrients and energy to neurons” – Medical Daily
