Meditation isn’t just for yogis and those seeking higher consciousness. It should be your go-to not only for health but also beauty and success. Studies show that meditation results in lower blood pressure, reduced stress levels and a 48 % reduced risk of heart attacks and strokes. Deep and meaningful meditation has an anti-aging effect, reduces risk of viral infections and improves injury and wound repair. The benefits of mediation also overlap with the attributes of highly successful people, like not being easily distracted, the ability to make good decisions, sufficient energy for long work days, etc. So it’s no longer a question of whether you believe in it or not - it’s whether you want to cash in on this ancient wisdom or lose out. Note that the benefits of meditation are quick (within a few days) and cumulative. So start today and don't skip practice on a good or less-stressful day.
Apps make meditation super easy to incorporate into your daily life. My favorite: Oprah and Deepak’s 21 Day Meditation Experience
