Role of meditation for healthy life style
Author(s): Rajveer Singh
Meditation for health purposes is a mind-body practice in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Practicing mindfulness and meditation may help you manage stress and high blood pressure, sleep better, feel more balanced and connected, and even lower your risk of heart disease. Meditation and mindfulness are practices-often using breathing, quiet contemplation or sustained focus on something, such as an image, phrase or sound-that help you let go of stress and feel more calm and peaceful. Think of it as a mini-vacation from the stress in your life stress is your body’s natural alarm system. It releases a hormone called adrenaline that makes your breathing speed up and your heart rate and blood pressure rise. It kicks us into action, which can be a good thing when we’re faced with a real danger or need to perform. But that “fight or flight” response can take a toll on your body when it goes on too long or is a regular occurrence. Mindfulness meditation provides a method for handling stress in a healthier way.
