NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Spa owner, Stephen Dowicz, explains why meditation is recommended for the mind and body.
Meditation has been known to have a myriad of benefits, such as reducing stress, fostering concise thinking, and increasing one's capacity for compassion and empathy. Here are more physical and emotional benefits associated with meditation.
Studies show that the body actually undergoes a structural change when meditating. During meditation, the brain's beta waves, which indicate a state where information is being processed, decrease. They are replaced by alpha waves, which are linked with total brain coherence. The parts of the brain that are associated with reasoning, planning, and processing sensory information also slow down. Since the number of stimuli to the brain is reduced, relaxation ensues. Physically, meditation also lowers blood pressure; decreases tension-related pain such as ulcers, tension headaches, and muscle and joint problems; increases serotonin to improve behavior and mood; improves immunity; and increases energy levels.
Meditation can also serve as an anti-inflammatory, which is another positive effect on the body. Since stress causes inflammation?which is linked to arthritis, asthma, heart disease and skin conditions such as psoriasis?reducing stress levels by meditating can treat and prevent these symptoms by switching off the stress response.
There are also profound mental benefits that can be realized through mediation, according to Stephen M. Dowicz. The relaxation of the brain waves that relax the body also relax the mind, allowing it to enter a deep, restful state. Meditation allows one to connect with the inner self, which can increase self-esteem and decision-making skills. Problems become smaller. Decreased anxiety, improved emotional stability, increased happiness, enhanced creativity, heightened intuition, and improved peace of mind are some other mental benefits of meditation. Additionally, meditation sharpens the mind, which eases frustration, tension, and anger.
Overall, regularly practicing meditation results in an overall sense of calmness and emotional balance. The mind and body become free from neurotic, negative behaviors. The conscience is clear, the mind is sharp, and the soul is free from burden.
