There are a lot of benefits of meditation, but the benefit which amazes us a lot is the benefit of meditation on the brain. Yes, with the help of the meditation the size of the brain increases, which results in more brainpower. The more you meditate, the better is the brain functioning. Meditation can be used for physical, mental and emotional healing. Self-awareness, contemplation and realization help to understand life better. It is necessary and good for everyone but is majorly useful for students and teachers as it helps to sharpen the memory and increases confidence level. Several searches have already proven that it is necessary to meditate daily as it aids in relieving stress and reduces the density of brain tissue which are associated with anxiety. Meditation is an interesting, beautiful and simple way of saying goodbye to most of your health and mental problems. It helps you to concentrate more, analyze better and helps you to make better decisions by improving the functioning of your brain’s decision-making centers. Meditation also helps in reaching a state of perfect happiness and understanding.
One might even say that meditation is equally important to the brain as exercise is to the body. Meditation also results in a change in brain chemicals. When we meditate our brain releases Endorphins which acts as a neurotransmitter to fight the pain. These endorphins are really powerful and also aids in reducing the blood pressure and make you feel happier. Meditation can help you get a better night’s sleep as well because it helps your brain release melatonin, which helps aid a restful night’s sleep. Scientific research has proven that the cable of nerves that links the hemispheres of the brain to each other was stronger, thicker and connected in a much well manner in the people which practice meditation on daily basis. Good connection in the brain hemispheres benefits our mind with excellent mental health, enhanced memory, better focus, deeper thought, and super creativity.
Meditation has been proven to naturally boost the production of our body hormones such as Endorphins, Serotonin and also lowers the production of Cortisol, the stress hormone. Meditation itself is the best medication for the depression also it has been proven several times. When the quantity of Serotonin and Norepinephrine gets lowered in our brain, we feel loneliness, becomes sad and then depressed, herein meditation comes in. With meditation one can boost the production of serotonin and norepinephrine in our brains, hence resulting in the depression-free state. Meditation is not a quick solution but yes the results are visible and can be felt within a very short period of time who practice it regularly.
