If you aren’t clear of the reasons WHY you do something you most likely won’t stick with the HOW. So stay tuned because this is going to be good.
1. You’ll be less stressed
Meditation is a simple and effective way to reduce stress. By taking a few minutes to focus on your breath, you can bring your body and mind into a state of relaxation.

Not only that, but your stress levels significantly drop and you find yourself able to handle challenging situations with grace and ease.
In short, meditation makes you more productive by helping you focus, reducing stress, and increasing your overall sense of well-being. So if you’re looking for a way to boost your productivity, meditation is definitely worth a try.
3. You’ll get sick less often
Not only has meditation been shown to have a number of benefits for physical health, including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and improving sleep. But one of the most surprising benefits of meditation is that it can actually make you less likely to get sick.
Meditation helps to boost the immune system by increasing the activity of natural killer cells, which are responsible for attacking viruses and bacteria. In one study, people who meditated for eight weeks had a greater increase in natural killer cell activity than those who did not meditate.
Additionally, meditation has been shown to reduce the production of stress hormones like cortisol, which can weaken the immune system. So if you’re looking for a way to stay healthy this winter, meditation may be worth a try.
4. You’ll have better relationships
Did you know that it can also improve your relationships? Studies have shown that meditation can help you to become more compassionate and patient, two qualities that are essential for healthy relationships.
Plue, since meditation can help you to manage stress and anxiety, both of which can take a toll on your personal interactions. It helps you overcome lover quarrels.

5. You’ll live longer
A recent study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that people who practiced meditation were more likely to live longer than those who didn’t. The study followed over 1,400 people for 6 years, and found that the meditators had a 20% lower risk of dying during the study period than the non-meditators.
So how does meditation make you live longer? One theory is that it helps to reduce stress levels, which can have a negative impact on health. Meditation has also been shown to improve sleep quality, andsleep is essential for good health. Additionally, meditation has been linked to reduced inflammation, improved heart health, and increased lifespan.
While more research is needed to conclusively say that meditation makes you live longer, the evidence so far is promising. If you’re looking for a way to improve your health, meditation may be worth a try.
So there you have it, my top three reasons why you should meditate every day.
Fun fact: Did you know that meditation is free? All you need is a comfortable place to sit or recline (I prefer lying down), and 10-20 minutes of your time each day. And if that’s too much commitment for you, start with 5 minutes per day and gradually increase the duration as you get more comfortable with the practice.
So what are you waiting for? Pick up a cushion, find a quiet spot, and let the peace wash over you.
Until next time!
