Meditation Benefits Your Mental Health
Gone are the days when people would turn their noses up at the thought of meditation. Meditation is now used to help with mental health. Mediation can better your mental health in many ways. By taking a few minutes every day you can train your brain to become more mindful and more focused. Meditation has become a mainstream form of relaxation, relieving stress in a quick and simple way.
Mindfulness meditation can ease mental health conditions such as depression or anxiety. It is a way of training your mind and body to respond to stress in a better way. A study showed that having meditated for just 3 days men and women were calmer and less prone to bouts of stress at work.
It also showed, in blood tests, that they had lower levels of a marker of inflammation. These blood test were taking 4 months after the experiment. Having seen the results of this case study, there is no denial that meditation can better your mental health and your body in general. Even months in advance, meditation has long term effects.
Meditation Can Be an Alternative to Medication
Mental health is now becoming a more talked about subject. People feel more comfortable to talk about their feelings and emotions which is great. The more we talk about mental health, the less we fear it. It is another reason why meditation can help. Most people are scared of the types of thoughts and feelings they experience with depression and anxiety. Meditation can combat these fears by helping sort through these thoughts and create a more focused and organised mental state.
For many sufferers of anxiety or depression they look for alternative methods of dealing with it than medication. The side effects of some anti-depressants can cause people to feel low and run down. Meditation however, creates a more focused mind and keeps you active.
