Meditation is a practice of relaxation where an individual trains their mind by inducing a level of consciousness to attain certain benefits. Normal life nowadays is full of stress and relaxation from time to time is a key to rejuvenation of our system. Conditioning the mind and living from the heart provide the ideal balance to create a more fruitful and fulfilling life.
The major benefits of meditating are:
1. Better memory
Meditation improves rapid memory recall.
Research has shown that people who practice mindful meditation are more able to adjust their brains to screen out distractions as compared to people who don’t meditate and thus enabling them to recall new things better.
2. More compassion and empathy
Research has also shown that regular meditation practitioners have higher levels of compassion and empathy.
This is even evident afterwards when the practitioners are not actually meditating.
The heart is a big component of our body and goes beyond the mere function of pumping blood to all our organs. Deep feelings such as compassion and love are felt within the heart space.
