We are starting to see more and more research suggesting meditation can boost all aspects of life. Studies suggest that it can help with cope with stress and even over eating.
The problem is who has the time to sit in a quiet room doing nothing. So most people take a pass on this option. I have included meditation into my fitness routine.
I started off small post workout. I would allot 3-10mins to just sit with my head phones on and listen to a guided meditation using an App.
When I first started meditation, I would close my eyes and think about a million other things on my “To Do” list. That was not very relaxing or distressing. It it like a muscle, you have to work it and concentrate to become stronger and better. Since I have included meditation a year ago. I have noticed a vast change. Here are some of the changes I have experienced and research has proven.
