Health Benefits of Meditation

Meditation: it comes up a lot, doesn’t it? We hear about it all the time from spiritual teachers and now even from doctors and health professionals. At Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life we talk about meditation on a daily basis. Here on this blog, we’ve discussed why meditation is so important, particularly how it helps tame the mind, and unites the mind, body, and spirit. We’ve focused on the mind and spirit a lot, so this week we are going to delve into how meditation physically benefits the body.

As we know, meditation is sitting in stillness for a period of time focusing on an object, a prayer, or your breath. Meditation is about quieting the mind and bringing alignment into your life. This is all great, but what happens to your body when you are sitting every morning in your meditation?

Here are five great things going on in your body when you meditate, and the benefits your body receives throughout the entire day.

  1. Lowers blood pressure.
  2. Reduces stress and tension in the body.
  3. Helps with concentration and improves memory.
  4. Slows down the breath and creates peace and calmness in the body.
  5. Promotes a healthy heart and harmony among all organ systems in the body.

There are many more benefits, some of which you might have already experienced in your own life. Let us know! What health benefits have you noticed in your body due to a daily meditation practice?
