Healthy Effects of
Mindfulness, Meditation Spirituality
Gazing at a sunset, sitting on a
rock and breathing in the aromas
of mother nature, or daydreaming
off into space are exercises in
mindfulness. Mindfulness, Meditation, and contemplation are vital (not to be overlooked) tools to assist you in being aware of the
deep, unbreakable connecting between your mind
and your body. It is our minds way of
taking a break, letting go and remembering
that nothing outside of ourselves is as important than what is on the inside. Read on...
There are many mindfulness and meditation benefits that are both physical and psychological.
Physically, it reduces stress. (stress on everything) joints, muscles, blood pressure, heart, lungs etc. Psychologically, it relieves the mind of all worries and stress thoughts. NOW being the mind is soul-connected to the body, it stands to reason that our health will improve substantially when we meditate.
One of the main benefits of meditation is stress reduction. Taking time for yourself, letting go of how life should be and simply being in the moment can help you control and manage your stress levels. Stress causes stain on your heart rate, blood pressure to go up and too much of that can create health issues. Meditating for a few minutes every day helps you to let go of stress to achieve a relaxed state of mind.
Spirituality is about having a Spiritual Base. It doesn't matter what religion or faith you aspire to. It doesn't matter if you go to church, synagogue, mosque, or temple or nothing at all. What does matter, to your health and well being, is what is going on inside. What do you believe? What do you stand for? What do you do with that belief?
Another aspect of a relaxed mind is it encourages a healthy lifestyle. It increases immunity and makes us more likely to eat and sleep well. Your mind becomes clearer, it is easier to concentrate and happiness or a sense of joy permeates your life. Hummmm..
Whether you have made plans to change or Mother Nature or God has intervened, forcing change, you will encounter euphoric moments of triumph, unexpected windfalls, unforeseen occurrences, and sometimes incredible obstacles. What you chose to DO with these experiences makes all the difference in whether you succeed, and the length of time it takes to recover.
What would you do if you had will over your body? What if you could command it to do things? What would you tell it? Well, you do have will over your body, you can command it, you can change your body through the quiet time of mindfulness and meditation.
