in palnet •  4 months ago 

As a way to try and lower stress during unrest and uncertainty, millions of people have been turning to meditation and mindfulness to calm their anxiety.

Thankfully, there are no fancy tools that you need in order to do this, no program that you need to pay for, you don't even require an internet connection or any money in your pocket. Mindfulness and meditation are open and free to any individual with a willingness and interest to try.

Meditation has been linked with a wide range of health benefits and is believed to help lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, stress, depression, help alleviate pain, and generally help to improve individual wellness and overall health.

There are a variety of forms: Concentration meditation, heart-centered meditation, Tai chi and qigong can both be considered forms of meditation, there is also transcendental Meditation, walking meditation, and more.

It does not take hours of meditation either, or a lifelong devotion to practicing mindfulness in order to reap some benefits from either. For meditation, previous research suggests that as little as 10-20 minutes of meditation can fuel positive benefits.

It has been shown to produce similar effects that you might seen when an individual goes on vacation.

This means that it has been associated with very high levels of wellbeing. And these results have been seen on more than one occasion, with less than 30 minutes of meditation time being exercised. You do not need much time at all to try and reap some of those potential benefits.

Micro-dose meditation

Investigations into micro-dosing meditation, short periods of meditation time, have discovered that you don't need to spend hours doing it to see possible results.

Micro-dose meditation, meditating for approx 10 minutes, has been shown to boost cognitive performance.

Whether it's 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 25 minutes or longer, the truth is that you don't need hours of time meditating for it to bring some sort of benefit.

If you want to see what it might be able to do for you, then it is an easy activity to explore, introducing meditation into your life whenever you can find the time.

With only a few minutes of meditation you might be able to notice a difference.
