The benefits of meditation
Posted: Mar 30 2017
Let's start with the facts... Mindfulness and meditation have been connected to positive developmental outcomes. These outcomes include successful relationships, attention control, and enhanced emotion regulation. (Alvarez and Emory, 2006) On top of this, when we meditate we are more "in-tune" with our behaviours and emotions.
Meditation doesn't mean sitting for hours and hours just to achieve these benefits. The key is to start small with maybe 5-10 minutes a day (or whatever feels right for you on that day). The most important thing to remember? Don't stress about fitting mediation into your daily life. Just make it happen whether it is before bed, during your lunch break, while your kids are napping, or first thing in the morning.
