I'm here to tell you, YOU CAN!
Are you one of those people who thinks meditation can't possibly be for you? ...
You can't sit in lotus position
You can't get your mind to shut up
You can't sit still for 5 minutes even at the best of times
(unless you are watching Game of Thrones with a large glass of Red in your hand)
But what if I told you you you don't HAVE to do any of those things?
What if I told you:
You can sit however is comfortable for you
Your noisy mind is normal
It is not a statue competition!
... HERE'S THE SCIENCE BIT ;) ...
Meditation has more benefits than you could imagine:
Meditating turns off the stress in your body
The fight, flight or freeze / stress response (sympathetic nervous system) is supposed to be a temporary response to get you out of danger, but in this modern world, it is likely yours is activated constantly - from the alarm going off in the morning, to a traffic jam making you late for a meeting.
This means your cortisol levels never get a chance to switch off, which means they become so high that they become ineffective, creating dis-ease in the body which can lead to serious stress-related health conditions such as heart attacks & strokes
It is imperative you take action to switch off your stress response & turn down that cortisol.
Meditation is the answer!
It switches on your relaxation response (the parasympathetic nervous system), which in turn switches off your stress response (your sympathetic nervous system / fight, flight or freeze)
Meditation makes you younger
(I kid you not!)
Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of our DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic covering at the end of shoelaces.
Without the covering, shoelaces begin to fray - it's the same with chromosomes - as we age, our telomeres shorten, our DNA strands become damaged & our cells can't do their jobs properly - this is when we see age related conditions developing.
Research has shown that with even just 15 minutes a day of a meditative activity, your Telomeres can begin to repair and regrow!
This means you can stave off age related diseases, feel younger & have more vitality!
Meditation Improves your memory
It was once though that our brains were solid & unchangeable, but we now know we can change & develop them by practising new thoughts & by implementing simple practices to developing new neuro-pathways
By meditating for 15 minutes a day, you will enable your hippocampus ( your memory centre) to develop, meaning you can Improve your memory
Meditation balances both hemispheres of your brain
Your brain has 2 hemispheres:
Your left hemisphere is your more logical, analytical, linear thinking side
Your right hemisphere is your more creative, intuitive, bigger picture side
Meditation balances the 2 sides of the brain, which helps you stave off diseases of the brain such as Dementia & Alzheimer, as well as:
Improves your overall cognitive function
Helps you feel calmer
Eases mild depression
On top of ALL that (as if they aren't enough reasons to meditate!), meditating really does help you learn to focus your mind, meaning that time you invest in meditation pays for itself countless times over as you
become more productive & effective as a human being!

Meditation is the oldest technique in the book for spiritual seekers. The oldest known record of it were the wall paintings of ancient India dated somewhere between 5000 + 3500 BC.
Once reserved for religious men, ascetics & those seeking enlightenment (Including The Bhudda), meditation has more recently become widespread throughout the world. Scientific research is finally catching up with what the ancient wisdom traditions have known all along, proving the physiological benefits of meditation & meditative activities.
Do not be off with the spiritual side of things, meditation can benefit EVERYONE - no matter what your spiritual or religious orientation.
If you are human, it works!
With practice, meditation brings a feeling of peace & calm, which spills out into everyday life, meaning challenges can be dealt with far more easily, feelings of anger can decrease & an open compassion for others can develop.
These wonderful 'side effects' been evidenced in human records for thousands of years, but are difficult to explain in words. It is best experienced on a personal level.
It is commonly believed that meditation brings us closer to who we really are - the soul which brought us into being in these incredible physical bodies - to that part of us that is deeply connected to every other person, being, creature & creation in existence.
To experience this deep knowing is the reason spiritual seekers have turned to meditation for millennia - to merge with all that is, that energy of pure & unconditional love that surrounds us & that we all are.
