Meditation, while not a tool used by most people, can help a variety of health problems such as chronic pain, anxiety, stress, heart health, boost mood and immunity, and pregnancy problems. These are all connected because they are impacted by stress.
Meditation can have a direct and positive correlation to stress levels. Relaxation during meditation helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves. Mentally, it can produce changes in attention, working memory, learning, and conscious perception. It is recommended that you take time to meditate about 15 minutes twice a day, as repetition is needed to produce these positive changes.
