Meditation Integration

Meditation is not what you think. -Jon Kabat-Zinn

As we make the transition into the next season, from the hot dry summer looking forward to cooler nights and beautiful California days, there is an inner calling for nourishment. The noise and busyness of the outside world can drown out our wise inner voice and interfere with our peace. But deeply listening to that inner wisdom is truly accessible by quieting and softening for more clarity. Meditation and mindfulness-based practices have been around for thousands of years, and there's been a fascination of them, and the benefits experienced through these practices. Science-based research is teaming with studies, showing significant positive results and benefits.

Here are just a few:

  • Emotional health. Meditation increases tranquil focus while decreasing mind clutter. It helps to develop greater perspective so that strong negative emotions can be reduced and stress is relieved.

  • Physiological health. Certain meditation practices target the harmful harboring of the stress hormone, cortisol. JAMA Internal Medicine conducted a study involving 3,515 participants showing evidence of the stress-reducing benefits of meditation. A study out of Harvard University showed a meaningful reduction in blood pressure, among other related positive changes.

  • Helps with memory retention, improves cognitive function and enhances focus and mental clarity, according to the neuroscientist, Andrew Huberman, PhD with his knowledge on non-sleep deep rest (NSDR), which is essentially yoga nidra.

You may have tried meditation, or you may have an on-going practice. You may have heard meditation discussed in a way that came across as overly strict, perhaps a bit scary, maybe lonely, or unapproachable. You may have experienced this. But know that it doesn't have to be that way.

Ideas & Encouragement

There are so many amazing ways to tap into the practice of being present, having greater clarity and a deeper connection to your true self! I encourage you to explore different styles of mindfulness practices. Perhaps explore meditations in places you wouldn't naturally think of as "meditation appropriate".

For some useful simple mindfulness practices to try out, hop over to Resources to learn more about some meditations I love to incorporate into my daily routines.
