Frequent meditation practice cut-down the amount of stress-related hormones in the body and makes your body less prone to stress. It invigorates the immune system and thereby gives an overall boost to the immune system.
2. Improvement of self-acceptance
Meditation improves the ability of the mind to understand itself thereby not applying wrong judgments to some certain issues of life. It helps the mind to develop various perspectives on our intuitive dialogue, and makes it more capable of controlling its thought. Meditation makes us aware of things happening around us because of the greater understanding of ourselves.
3. Improvement of self-confidence.
Our self-confidence arises from what we know about ourselves. So as we build our self-acceptance, we are at the same time building our self confidence. When we start having negative thought about ourselves while meditating, we notice this and try to work on ourselves to be better. This in turn is a boost to our self-confidence.
4. Helps in building good relationship
There are two ways by which meditation help to foster good relationship; firstly, because of the fact that meditation makes one to be very relaxed, grounded and self accepting, it gives one the patience to reconnect with ourselves when there is conflict and also the ability to be our best selves with other people. Secondly, because of the patience that meditation provides us with, it makes us to be aware of the situation of things happening in our relationship thereby making us not to jump to decision-making.
5. It improves concentration
Be ready to start meditating when you want concentration. As soon as we learn how to focus on our breath, have a prior notice when we are lost in thought, and convert our concentration or focus into breath, we can convert this great skill into numerous settings we desire. Through meditation, we correct our wrongs when we get to know we are off track.
6. It improves the feelings of “wholeness”
This particular benefit of meditation is quiet not too easy to explain until oneself experiences it. The powerful feelings of connecting your body with your mind once a day is not to be underestimated. Doing this gives the feeling of oneness and well being. This further produces stability, groundedness, a sense of perspective, or self-connection. In this world where we spend all our time focusing on external issues, it’s a good to take little time to reconnect with our internal feelings to change our experience and view of the entire world.
