Tap. Chat. Meditate
Meditation is a mind and body practice. As yoga exploded into popular acceptance over the past ten years, similarly meditation is now having its moment in the sun. First it was focused primarily on physical health, but we are now witnessing a growing emphasis on meditation’s benefits for mental balance and well-being.
Regular meditation can improve the immune system, cure depression, boost memory, regulate emotions, and even change the structure of the brain.
Meditation is the new yoga
There are many types of meditation, most of which originated in ancient religious and spiritual traditions. Some forms of meditation instruct the practitioner to become mindful of thoughts, feelings, and sensations and to observe them in a nonjudgmental way.
Meditation is not just for relaxation; its primary purpose is to develop the capacity to respond skillfully and gracefully to life’s difficulties, as well as its joys. Science is finally catching up with the importance of meditation, Harvard neuro-scientists’ study has confirmed that meditation grows our brains.
