“If you can’t meditate in a boiler room, you can’t meditate.” – Alan Watts
If you can’t meditate for spiritual reasons, consider doing it just for your body. Meditation is an essential act of self-preservation in this high demand, fast paced reality we live in.
And sleep just doesn’t work for completely healing and balancing the body and nervous system because our “conscious presence” is not there because the unconscious mind tends to stay in motion while your physical body is resting.
Everything we see, read and interact with is information that causes excitation which overstimulates the nervous system. Meditation gives your nervous system a break from the perpetual processing of information.
Adrenal Fatigue is on the rise, and regular meditation is a great practice that allows the adrenal glands to rest and recover allowing you to have more energy to enjoy your life.
There are numerous health benefits of meditation that are well-researched and documented by many institutions like the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).
People who meditate avoid depression and allow their natural state of well-being to take over.
Recent research also suggests that meditation helps counteract the age-related loss of brain volume.
Regular meditators may also develop “stress reduction pathways” in your brain making them resistant to stressful environments.
This stress reduction pathway also helps to relieve stress-related diseases such as: High blood pressure, Sleep disturbances and fatigue, chronic pain, gastrointestinal distress and irritable bowel syndrome, Headaches, Skin disorders, Respiratory problems such as emphysema and asthma, and Mild depression and premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Meditation even has been proven to have anti-inflammatory effects making it an ideal therapy for inflammation-linked diseases such as Alzheimer’s, arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and signs of aging.
My affiliate friends at Mindvalley have teamed up with meditation teacher Tom Cronin. You can check out Tom talking about the benefits of meditation on You Tube here and a great interview here and also on Facebook here.
The Four Biggest Reasons You’re Not Meditating
In a recent survey of the Mindvalley community, this is what they found:
- 39% of you said they couldn’t focus well enough to meditate effectively.
- 33% said mental chatter derailed their efforts.
- 21% said the process is laborious and takes too long to see results.
- 8% attributed physical restlessness as the major reason why they can’t meditate properly.
All of these are common problems, but all can be solved if you do it with the right method.
