We have been practicing dharma through meditation every week. So why meditate?
According to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), showed people who meditate have bigger brains (known as neuroplasticity) and stronger connections between different parts of the brain.
Not only that, meditation evokes the ’relaxation response’, lowering heart rate and boosting the immune system. This eases heart disease, cholesterol and high blood pressure. Also, meditation reduces the length of time to sleep for people suffering from insomnia, according to research by Stanford Medical Centre.
In summary, meditation showed measurable improvements in our body, such health benefits, ability to solve complex problems and enhances will-power. These are certainly useful to students as many of us often face difficulties in studying.
Lastly, meditation is completely FREE! It requires no equipment and is easy. It can be practiced anywhere, anytime, and isn’t time consuming (15-20 min. per day is good). With such a huge list of benefits, the question you should ask yourself is, “Why am I not meditating yet?”
So stop procrastinating and take action now!
