Meditation is Meaningful

We’ve covered why movement is essential… and this week we’ll cover why meditation is meaningful! 

The power of meditation is underrated. Just as in regular exercise keeps our mind, body, and health strong, habitual meditation can have a similar positive effect. It’s also super easy to do! What benefits might you see if you meditate daily and concentrate on mind-body awareness?

Benefits:

Control your anxiety. People are less likely to have anxiety if they have control over the things that stress them out! Meditation can help you focus on, hone in on, and reflect on your stressors and further help you control your feelings about them. Some studies have shown that meditation can even reduce the inflammatory response associated with stress in the body!

and 

Enhance self-awareness. If you’ve been following us for awhile, this isn’t the first time we’ve addressed self-awareness and how important it is! Self-awareness is tied to mental and emotional health. Different guided meditations can help you discover your thought patterns and answer questions about how you feel about yourself. The goal is to improve those thoughts and make them more positive– which will help you achieve better emotional health!

While we’ve only covered two reasons to practice meditation in this blog, you can read more about the benefits of meditation in this Healthline article. During this uncertain time, stress and emotional health are topics we should be talking about openly.
