So you want to know more about the benefits of meditation?
Of course, the best way to benefit from any kind of meditation is to start doing it!
What you benefit from meditation, will be exactly what your intention sets out.
Regular practitioners of meditation say they develop a feeling of greater emotional equilibrium… and I am all for that!
In psychoanalytic terms, their egos are less involved in everyday situations.
According to Buddhists, one of the results of meditation should be a feeling of compassion – much easier when your ego is under control. Self control – as a result of ego control, in turn, increases self confidence and a person’s sense of certainty…
Simply, this means that meditation could make you ‘nicer’ to your fellow beings… Something we could all do with in this world.
Meditation does not mean ‘zoning out’! Actually, one of the benefits of meditation is that regular practice will make your mind much sharper and quicker. The ability to concentrate is hugely enhanced…
Tasks take less time and feel easier to accomplish. When you need to do something, you will be able to just do it, instead of wasting time agonizing about it.

On a physical level, meditation has been the subject of many scientific studies since the 1960s. These studies have shown that among the benefits of meditation are lower blood pressure, some alleviation of pain, increased levels of melatonin, the sleep hormone; and lower stress levels.
It also seems to help people who are trying to stop smoking or taking hard drugs. Some doctors have even suggested meditation for insomniacs, chronic pain sufferers and heart patients… And with good results!
Severe depressives and people suffering psychotic illness have sometimes shown to become worse after practicing meditation over a sustained period. If you are concerned about such rare negative side effects you should consult with a medical professional. Otherwise, the benefits of meditation can apply to anyone willing to spend some time on regular meditation sessions.
