At The Cedars, the days are filled with routine and various groups. One of those groups our patients experience, is a daily guided meditation practice with our counsellors.
Meditation is a useful tool for anyone, whether they’re in recovery or not, to sync the connection between mind and body.
The overall benefits of a consistent meditation practice are endless, read below for a few that we find very important.
- Stress Reduction: Regular meditation practice can produce a welcome state of relaxation. During meditation, you learn to focus your attention and the mass of thoughts that may be causing stress. Less stress = better physical and emotional well being.
- Assists with anxiety control: With regular meditation and specific anxiety based meditation practice, you can learn to isolate the physical tell-tale signs of an anxiety attack and how to safely navigate through the sensations.
- Promotes emotional health: Many people have found that with a regular meditation practice in place, their moods, general focus and work life showed improvements.
Interested in building your own meditation practice? Consider the assistance of mobile Apps such as Headspace that have a very user-friendly approach to meditation at home. All you need is a quiet corner and an attitude of willingness to try.
