STRESS MANAGEMENT & MEDITATION
Regular meditation makes you happier, dissipates accumulated stress, cultivates a state of restful awareness and can even slow the aging process. Sound good?
In meditation, your body releases stress and reverses the effects of the flight-or-fight response—that ancient instinct we all have to either run from perceived danger or take it on in battle. Although few of us face daily threats to our bodily existence, we often live in a prolonged state of fight or flight, generating stress in response to bad traffic, bad choices, criticism or a disagreement.
There are many compelling studies showing the power of meditation to relieve stress and promote inner calm. For example, a 2011 study published in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal found that full-time workers who spent a few hours each week practicing mindfulness meditation reported a significant decrease in job stress, anxiety, and depressed mood. Basically, chronic unmanaged stress will make you sick.
