The Benefits of Meditation

“Meditation is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divinity within you.”

― Amit Ray

Learning to meditate helps us to let go of the harmful stuff we don’t need in our lives such as stress, anxiety and negative emotions, and cultivate a more positive, calmer attitude to life. Meditation teaches us to slow down and enjoy life, instead of rushing from one moment to the next. The proven benefits of meditation to our health and well-being are huge, and learning to sit, even for just 10 minutes every day, will result in you seeing a huge change in yourself and in your day to day life.

Meditation does not need to be linked to religion or spirituality, it is simply a technique that you can learn to develop in order to improve your well-being, physically, mentally and emotionally. Just some of the proven benefits of meditation are:

• Improved concentration

• Reduction of anxiety

• Stress reduction/ management

• Better sleep

• Feeling happier and more positive

• Feeling calmer

• Increased compassion towards others and yourself

• Increased awareness of self

• Help with addiction

• Increased energy

• Heightened awareness of the world and your surroundings

• Help in coping with grief

Meditation isn’t complicated. The key is to find the practice that works the best for you, depending on your needs, and learning to commit yourself to practicing every day; these are the key tools that you will learn in any meditation class with Elestial Therapy. Self-care is one of the most important gifts that we can give to ourselves and if you really do want to look after and nourish yourself, both mentally and physical, learning to meditate is central to that gift!
