How meditation could prove beneficial to our lives!

Meditation has the effect of making people more compassionate, calm, tolerant and self-actualized. It has been found that people who meditate are happier and less stressed than those who do not. However, more research is needed on the long-term effects of meditation and also its effects on mental health, as more studies are needed to determine the efficacy of meditation as a long-term treatment for depression and other mental illnesses.

It is pretty much evident that meditation can be extremely helpful to reduce stress, fatigue and even anger. Some evidence in recent studies have found that meditation can be used as an adjunct to psychotherapy, and in treating anxiety, depression and even obsessive-compulsive disorders.

Several experiments have stated that meditation, which not only means sitting eyes closed for long hours, but could also be just being steady for a few minutes of the day, have had immense effect on increasing attention and alertness of a specific age group. Meditation is not just about being still for a long time rather can be done anywhere and at any point of time. Observing people around, focusing on the work or task at hand, paying attention while eating are some of the other ways to meditate if you don’t find time.
