 What are the benefits of Meditation?

Meditation is a balancing technique and often associated with relaxation. It helps to train your scattered mind to focus on a single object, and with that process to put you back in control of your life.

Meditation will also support your Mindfulness practice and deepen your ability to stay in the present moment, cultivate self-care and compassion towards yourself and others.

Some of the most commonly reported benefits of Meditation:

  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Promotes good sleep
  • Alleviates depression, eating disorders and some addictions
  • Improves creative and critical thinking abilities
  • ​Increases energy levels
  • Improves focus and concentration
  • Lowers blood pressure
