Look For The Calm Within Yourself

Updated: Aug 11, 2019

The benefits of meditation.

The effects of stress on the body are many and some include;

  • Decreased nutrient absorption

  • Decreased gut flora populations

  • Decrease in thyroid hormone

  • Decrease in sex hormone

  • Increase in inflammation

  • Increased nutrient excretion

  • Increased cortisol production

With a daily practice of meditation, it can take as little as two minutes to calm the nervous system and switch the body from a sympathetic to parasympathetic state, allowing the body to reduce anxiety and operate in a state of healing and assimilation.

Habitual meditation helps reduce anxiety and anxiety-related mental health issues like social anxiety, phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviours.
