ver the past twenty years or so, meditation has gained an increasing acceptance and practice in the Western world. While still far from being an important part of Western society, the practice of meditation has made significant inroads in the therapeutic and medical community and is winning increasingly broad support in business, educational, and political arenas.
Many studies have indicated significant mental and physical health benefits in those who meditate. Consistent meditation has been found to improve health conditions including heart disease, cholesterol, high blood pressure, insomnia, chronic pain, cancer, and immunity. Research on mediation has also shown significant improvements in mental health, memory, concentration, and productivity.
Meditation helps the mind focus on being present in the moment, and on a union of the body and the mind. The consistent practice of meditation is one of the most important and effective self-help tools available today for personal health and effectiveness.
