The Power of Meditation

The Power of Meditation

Meditation has been around for thousands of years, and researchers have documented its value in a variety of settings and applications. There is nothing like it for nurturing the spirit and calming the mind. Consistent practice improves our intellectual capacity, strengthens our self-worth and compassion, and increases our powers of awareness.

However, we sometimes overlook the fact that meditation also has huge physical health benefits! Check out these 3 health-boosting qualities associated with the art of meditation:

1. Lower stress and anxiety: Meditation is an excellent way of conquering the physical symptoms of stress and anxiety, such as shortness of breath, tingling limbs, muscle tension and more. Regular meditation practice also helps to improve our overall mental well-being.

Improved Sleep
2. Better sleep: The University of Utah study indicated that individuals who practiced meditation and mindfulness during the day were more likely to fall asleep quicker at night than those who had not.

3. Better athletic performance: Any seasoned athlete will attest that 90% of the game is mental. Not only does meditation improve our powers of concentration, but it can also impact our flexibility and balance.

Meditation has unlimited benefits to offer, but you also need to make sure your full body is in alignment to reap all the benefits; mind, body and soul. Book your appointment with us today by clicking the link below!
