Why Meditate?

by Terri David

Why Meditate? Traditional meditation can take years to master deep levels of meditation. 

I guess that why its called a meditation practice. 

As you look through this page, there are a number of studies that will show the answer to why its so beneficial to meditate? 

I found them compelling and I think you will too. 

A study of the elderly found that the benefits of meditation actually added years to their lives. 

The National Institute of Health reports that the benefits of meditation reduces cholesterol, and cortisol (sometimes referred to as the stress hormone) production, chronic pain, anxiety and high blood pressure.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison study discovered meditation boosts brain function and the immune system. 

A recent issue of the American Journal of Hypertension features the results of a study showing a significant lowering of blood pressure in a group of meditators compared to a control group of people who didn’t meditate.

The study also reported a 23% decrease in usage of anti-hypertensive drugs between the group of meditators and the other group.

A Harvard study also concluded that regular meditation can reduce pain, lower blood pressure, and cut production of the stress hormone, cortisol. 

The most recent study by the American Heart Association shows heart and artery health improved 69% in test groups practicing meditation.

And this is just the beginning. Practically every time you turn around there’s another study supporting fantastic health and wellness benefits of meditation. 


So you have several choices:

1. Don’t meditate, continue doing what you are doing and get the results in your life you have always got.

2. Take the journey to learn. There are quite a few different resources available to you right here.
