Meditation For Health

Keep yourself happy and healthy this winter by meditating.
Meditation can help you cope with stress, improve mood and boost immunity.

We all know that stress has the power to wipe us out — mentally and physically. Who hasn’t gotten a headache or a bad cold after a particularly trying week at the office? Stress-management techniques like meditation can help us feel calmer, happier and even more energetic. What’s more, new research shows that these positive psychological changes can affect our health all the way down to our DNA.

A study at the University of California, Davis shows that meditation helps keep our genetic material healthier and longer lasting, which means better health and longevity for us. Past research suggests daily meditation may also boost the immune system.
