Practicing meditation and mindfulness can help one manage stress & high blood pressure, sleep better, feel more connected & balanced, and lower the risk of heart disease.
Although meditation is an age-old practice, research on its health benefits is relatively new and promising. When you are under sheer stress, your adrenal glands tend to overproduce the cortisol hormone. Overexposure to cortisol heavily affects the function of your brain, immune system and several other organs in the body. Chronic stress contributes to anxiety, headaches, heart disease, depression, and even premature death.
Whatever be your preferred meditation method, a common approach is to sit in a quiet place for at least five minutes to half an hour without any distraction from the outside world. Set the alarm if you hate to miss track of time.
Meditating every day at the same time will help you develop a regular habit, making it easier and quicker to immerse into deeply meditative states.
The beauty of meditation is that you do not need any equipment to do it. All you need is a quiet space and a few minutes out of your busy day. At the beginning, you can start with 10 minutes twice a day.
While meditating, you can choose to chant out loud. Chanting out loud will help drown out thoughts. It will take a week or two of regular meditation to experience a noticeable change in your mental health and stress level.
