Meditation is the practice of directed focus on one particular object. I use a breath focused meditation practices as this allows your practice to be carried with you anywhere.
The benefits of meditation are that it reduces the amount of cortisol (stress hormone) in your body, providing a space for your body to rest, restore itself and heal. Not only does this practice provide more cognitive clarity and emotional stability but it also has incredible health benefits.
Delving even deeper into the benefits this practice can bring: it reduces aging, reduces the risk of Alzheimer's, increases heart coherence, decreases cardiovascular disease, and decreases mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression.
Meditation stimulates the delta and theta waves in the brain, which are a lower frequency brain waves associated with relaxation. This provides your body the opportunity to heal all in the comfort of your own home.
