Mental Health, Wellness

Why Meditation Works

In last week’s post, I talked about meditating to help relieve yourself of mental stress. The more I looked into meditation, the more benefits I discovered!

Before I delve into my list, I want to be clear that I didn’t come up with these reasons on my own. I did my research, and I felt that this site gave the best scientifically based reasons for meditating. Plus you have access to more helpful links.

Here are 7 big reasons why meditation works:

  1. It boosts your health
  2. It boosts your happiness
  3. It boosts your social life
  4. It boosts your self-control
  5. It changes your brain
  6. It improves your productivity (in other words, it may help with motivation!)
  7. It makes you wiser and keeps you real

I have found that meditating really does work for these exact reasons! Try it for yourself and see if your overall wellness doesn’t improve. Then come back and tell me your discovery. 🙂
