What is meditation?
Meditation can have different meanings to different people, and it has been practiced all over the world for thousands of years. Meditation is sort of a brain exercise, where you want to train the brain to stay focused or on clearing the mind. There are several types of meditation, and various reasons to meditate, as well there are many benefits to be gained through meditation.
Benefits For the Brain and Mind
In some studies meditation has shown to preserve the aging brain when compared to those of the same age group who did not meditate. Meditation has also been shown to be as effective when dealing with depression as antidepressants although it is not the magic cure. Meditation can be a significant tool to help manage symptoms of depression and anxiety. It also contributes to improving concentration and keeping the brain active. Meditation is ideal for reducing stress, which can help lower cortisol levels that can lead to other health issues like adrenal fatigue. There are so many benefits related to meditation that the list goes on and on! If your adrenals are over stressed your brain will be too tired to focus on meditation.
