This time of year we are always making different resolutions, many of which regard our health. We start diets and we join gyms. Meditation has been proven over and over to benefit not only our minds, but our bodies as well. It is one of the most important things we should be doing everyday. This is a great meditation for beginners. It really helped me learn how to meditate. This beginner’s meditation is only ten minutes, so if you are pressed for time this is perfect for you.
We are so willing to pay a monthly membership and get trainers for our bodies, yet we cannot sit still for ten minutes a day to improve our brain which in turn also improves our bodies. Meditation has been known to treat many problems and diseases such as anxiety, pregnancy problems, stress, and chronic pain. Meditating boosts your heart health, mood and immunity. When you are meditating your body goes into a relaxed response. In the relaxation response your body lowers blood pressure and improves heart rate, breathing and brain waves. Tension and tightness leave your muscles as your body receives a quiet message to relax.
MRI scans have shown that meditating over long periods of time can change your brain activity and make you have a better attention span, working memory, increase learning potential and conscious perception. It is great for children as young as five years old and everyone older! There is no downside to meditation. We put so much money into a monthly gym membership and for trainers, but when it comes to quietly sitting for ten minutes a day for our minds, that’s too much time? This is free, takes less effort, and everyone can do it! You can finally exercise while sitting down. Try out this easy 10 minute Meditation for Beginners and make it a part of your daily routine.
