Think about how much time of your day is spent being busy. There are a million things to get done, and our attention and time are constantly being used. We try so hard to keep up that we may lose ourselves in the process. With such hectic routines, it makes sense that most Americans are suffering from severe stress and anxiety. We’re human beings and we’re overwhelmed, but what can we do to fix this before we implode? Well, you probably have heard about the phenomenon of meditation, but have you ever given it a try? To all the nonbelievers out there, meditation is no myth so don’t be shy and give it a try!
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT
Meditation is simply good for you. You don’t need to be incredibly spiritual to understand how beneficial it can be for your body and soul. Meditation is useful for any kind of person whether you’re a stay at home mom or a businessman, we can all benefit from this process.
HOW DOES IT WORK
Meditation itself allows your pituitary gland to secrete endorphins, which in turn makes us feel good, emotionally and physically. It also boosts the activity in your brain that is related to emotions and how we experience events. It can even tackle depression and anxiety, and help with pain tolerance.
BEST TIME TO MEDITATE
Meditation can happen at any time of day but research says the best time is usually early in the morning. The experience of meditation is even more productive when your mind is completely clear before the stressful day. Morning meditation can set your tone of the day and provide you with more energy for the entire day. It can also improve your focus and overall well being.
Many people think that meditation takes a long time but you don’t have to meditate extended periods. Even if you only have 5 minutes to spare, it can still be beneficial!
