Meditation

The benefits of meditation research and scientific meditation highlight the health benefits of meditation conclusively. This research shows how the structure of the brain can actually be altered, particularly the part of the brain that deals with emotions and stress. Therefore, meditation can help us improve our response to stress, pain and negative emotions. In fact, meditation can improve every aspect of our physical and emotional health and is one of the one of the most cost effective ways of healing and preventing serious illness – no wonder the NHS are interested! And no wonder many individuals like you are now seeking alternative relaxation techniques for anxiety such as meditation training and mindfulness courses. .

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

So what is Mindfulness Meditation? Meditation is not just about relaxation. Although there is no doubt that practicing meditation regularly has huge benefits in terms of work/life balance, teaching us how to cope with stress, and providing relaxation techniques for anxiety. It is so much more...................If you learn to meditate, you quieten the mind, body and soul. You learn to be still and it promotes self acceptance and self awareness. This quote by Jonathan Haidt sums up meditation for me........................

“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is meditation.” (The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonanthan Haidt)

Mindfulness, in plain English focuses more on becoming aware, being present and observing non- judgementally. By becoming more mindful, we become more connected not only with ourselves but with others around us. Regular meditation practice can enable us to become more mindful & contented in our everyday lives.
