Meditation

Did you know… that relaxation techniques can help lower blood pressure, protect your heart and decrease stress, depression and anxiety?

A just-published study suggests the practice of meditation may bring cardiovascular and mental- health benefits based on research that followed 298 students, half of whom practiced transcendental meditation for 20 minutes once or twice daily over three months.

A subgroup of subjects in the meditation group who were at increased risk for hypertension significantly lowered their blood pressure and psychological distress, and also bolstered their coping ability. Meditators who were not at an increased risk for hypertension saw a reduction in psychological distress, depression, and anxiety as well as increased coping ability.

To experience these benefits, add a few minutes of meditation to your daily routine. Just 20 minutes a day can begin to make a big difference in how you feel mentally, physically, and emotionally. When your mind is calm and your emotions are within your control, you’re in a much better position to
tackle all your normal responsibilities plus the goals you’ve set for yourself.
