How healthy is meditation?

Meditation isn’t magic, but with practice it can help bring a sense of inner peace and well-being to our daily lives.

Numerous studies have shown that people who practice meditation regularly over many years have more grey matter in certain regions of their brain. It’s also believed to enhance neural connections. Meditation can help us banish worry or negative thoughts and cope with stress, which is also beneficial to the cardiovascular system. But meditation isn’t a mysterious ritual – even simple breathing exercises, performed for several minutes in the morning and evening, can have astonishing benefits. You can learn the techniques in seminars, or just by reading a book and practicing as you go along. But practicing regularly is key!
