So…where to from here?

Extended periods of time spent in “flight, flight, or freeze” mode (or stress response) are clearly not good for us, being a major contributor to significant physical and mental health issues in the modern day.

If we do not manage to return to a relaxation response, our ability to embrace a state of well-being is compromised, and a level of dis-ease will ensue.

Meditation allows us to return to the relaxation response, and, essentially, results in the opposite of every effect of the stress response.

Regular meditation practice can –

  • elicit relaxation
  • calm the mind
  • strengthen the body’s immune system
  • slow biological aging
  • reduce stress
  • improve your power of concentration
  • allow more rational thinking
  • encourage better sleep
  • help with self-confidence and self-esteem
  • give you a sense of physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing
  • assist in the treatment of illness and dis-ease
  • lead to more physical energy and motivation…

…and so on…the benefits are illuminating and life-changing.
