What are the benefits of Mindfulness Meditation?


Mindfulness meditation is a method of meditation that consists of being aware of the present moment during the day.  It is, therefore, possible to practice it while working, eating, or taking the time to relax. Ideally, practicing it several years in a row is necessary to obtain accurate results at least 30 minutes a day. Nevertheless, the first positive effects are palpable in the short term.

Empathy & Stress

In the long term, it seems that mindfulness meditation has positive effects on the brain. Thus, short-term memory would be increased, as well as empathy. Indeed, the practitioner can understand different situations better thanks to improved concentration. We also notice that stress has much less devastating effects on people who meditate regularly. If we compare meditation to coffee, we can say that meditation brings all the advantages without disadvantages

Emotion & Attention

The various scientific studies conducted so far prove that mindfulness meditation allows one to regulate one’s emotions better. A person who is easily stressed will be less affected by bad news or an anxiety-provoking situation if they practice mindfulness meditation for several years. On the contrary, they will be able to focus on what is positive while remaining extremely vigilant.

Health & Mindfulness Meditation  

The long-term benefits of mindfulness meditation are not limited to psychological well-being, empathy, stress management, or memory. Although it is still early to confirm all these positive effects (waiting for reliable studies on the subject), it would seem that the practice of meditation is beneficial in the fight against :
;High blood pressure
-Sleep disorders
-Certain skin problems
-Chronic pain
-Respiratory diseases such as asthma or emphysema
-Intestinal disorders
-Moderate depression.
Most of these ailments are more or less closely related to stress, so it is not surprising that meditation can help alleviate them. Mindfulness meditation allows everyone to train and maintain their brain as they would a muscle. This practice is still recent, and the results of various studies should prove its positive effects in the long term in the years to come.
