There are numerous reasons to meditation, but the main one I tell everyone is to manage stress. Stress that is related to every type of disease from hypertension to autoimmune to cancer. Meditation has endless benefits that have been scientifically proven to make you a happier more accepting individual. Your mind gets stronger, you increase your grey matter, life gets just a bit easier. Everyone has something to gain with meditation.
This month Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey have a 21-day challenge. Now this isn’t really my suggestion for starting to meditate, because if you’ve never done it, you are kind of forced to go from no minutes in silence to about 10-15 minutes. I would recommend starting off with listening to the daily message and then going for as long as your mind will allow you.
