Meditation is like a gym in which you develop the powerful mental muscles of calm and insight.”
Mindset, focus, prayer – These are just some of the words often used in meditation.
Great philosophers around the world have declared the power of meditation and it’s
effect on the mind and the body. Yes, mediation actually works and you might be surprised by what it can offer to your life and here’s some science behind it…
It was found out in a 2014 meta-analysis study that meditation can reduce various negative dimensions involving psychological stress. Mental and physical stress cause a hormone called cortisol to be released in the bloodstream and produce cytokines. This group of chemicals may result in inflammation. Meditation helps in managing stress, especially when practiced consistently and can help reduce levels of cortisol thus reducing inflammation.
Don’t forget, our Organic Berry Boost has the right ingredients to also help reduce inflammation and promote calmness too due to the powerhouse superfood Reishi Mushroom being included. A teaspoon of it into cereals, juices and beverages can contribute to a positive mood and a healthy body.
Overall Health & Well-being
As you manage stress by meditation, you may gradually experience a state of mindfulness. This has great benefits which include improvement of sleep, prevention of depression, anxiety and so much more.
Being mindful is a powerful trait that will empower you to always look at the pleasures in life no matter what it takes you to. This will give you an armour of protection against anxiety, panic attacks and even depression.
As you practice being mindful, you’ll start to feel relaxed and eventually achieve a consistent sleeping habit. Sleep is very important as it gives your body a chance to recover from a day’s work. Believe it or not, even if you don’t “feel” stressed, your body is on a continuous battle against everyday pollution, free radicals and all the other “invisible” negativities in life.
Our Organic Green Charge contains ingredients such as Ashwagandha which act as adaptogens to help balance cortisol in the body naturally, which can help to reduce stress, anxiety and promote calmness too so why not take a teaspoon every day to help take those worries away.
Meditation may seem easy, but for some it can actually be a bit challenging. If you are new to meditation, start by sitting comfortably in a quiet place, close your eyes and try and do a series of inhales and exhales. Make sure to empty your mind and focus on your breathing only. Try this for 5-minutes each day until you are able to meditate for longer.
