    5 Science Based Reasons to Develop a Meditation Practice

    February 11, 2018

    Have you tried to meditate, but just haven't been disciplined enough to stick with it?  Well, science has shown many beneficial reason you might just want to give it another shot.  Here's my Top 5:

     

    1.  Stress Reduction 

    This is one of the main reasons people want to try meditation, and for good reason.  Stress causes inflammation, which is the cause of a whole host of other diseases like Rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's Disease.  Numerous scientific studies have shown meditation to reduce stress, and may also reduce the effects of stress related conditions.

     

    2.  Lowers Anxiety

    Less Stress also means less anxiety, including the symptoms of various anxiety disorders, such as phobias, social anxiety, paranoid thoughts, obsessive-compulsive behaviors and panic attacks.

     

    3.  Lengthens Attention Span

    Studies have shown that workers who meditate regularly have the ability to stay on task longer than their non-meditating peers.  Not only that, those who meditate were able to recall more details related to their work.

     

    4.  Facilitates Kindness & Compassion

    One style of meditation, Metta, specifically focuses on loving compassion, beginning first with self love, and then expanding to love and compassion for others.  Subsequent benefits have been reduced social anxiety and marriage conflict resolution.

     

    5.  Pain Management

    Studies have been conducted that show increased activity in the pain control centers of the brains of meditating people.  They also report experiencing lower levels of both chronic and intermittent pain.  Another great option for natural and effective pain management is CBD Oil.

     

    Well, there it is.  My Top 5 scientifically based reasons you might want to start a regular meditation practice.  For even more, check out this Healthline article here!
