With the progression of technology our brains are finding it harder and harder to switch off. It is estimated that we are currently exposed to 3000 messages daily, more people are suffering from insomnia and high anxieties or stress levels. No wonder we are finding it harder to stop our minds from being over active. One way we can look to reducing the mental pressures of life is to introduce meditation into our lives. Just 25 minutes of meditation per day can dramatically relieve stress. Meditation teaches the brain to slow down and brings the chemical balance of the brain to the same level of that when you are asleep, so regular meditation can leave you feeling as refreshed as a power nap. Other benefits of meditation are: can Improve concentration, lower high blood pressure, help with insomnia, lower stress levels and can improve overall sense of wellbeing.
