Meditation reduce stress and improve your brain function, start meditation now !!

With escalating cost of living, inflation, soaring house prices, pandemics, regional wars around the world, there seems to be no shortage of events that sends our stress levels through the roof. Stress will impact on your overall health and is known to be the cause of many major illnesses.

Meditation is an antidote to stress, just as an aspirin can counter a headache. Regular meditation can be a major boost to health. It calms the nervous system and it’s good for the immune system and your heart. Meditation helps produce nitric oxide in the arteries, dilating them and reducing blood pressure and smooths heart rhythms.

Thanks to an explosion of brain research by medical and neuroscientists, we now know that it also physically impacts our gray matter.

With the right type of meditation our brain paths can be rewired, contrary to old beliefs that as we age the brain functions are “cast in concrete”. This is now conclusively revealed through studies in Harvard and many other research institutions. Studies in Denmark show that the gray matter of those who meditate does not shrink and infact grows.

The volume of our gray matter normally reduces as we get older and this is what the scientists found in the group of non-meditators. But for the meditators, their gray matter hadn’t reduced at all with age. According to the scientists, meditation had a ‘neuroprotective’ effect on the meditators: It protected the brain from some of the effects of aging.

At this time in our lives, yoga and mediation will work hand in hand to keep you less stressed, reduce anxiety and look after your heart and boost your immune system.

On the topic of meditation,  it is important to start with one pointed concentration practices  ( called Dharana in Yoga terminology) and then proceed to Meditation practices.  It is essential to learn the proper process of meditation to avoid mental afflictions. Do not get carried away by people who claim that they can open your chakras( inner energies) or make you see coloured light during meditation and so on. All progress can be achieved by your self-effort under the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher without any adverse side effects.
