Meditation Helps You Do Well In School

One of the wonderful ways to go through your day is to meditate twice in a day, once in the morning when you get up and once at night, when you go to bed. The works of physiologist Dr. Vernon Barnes to the Medical College of Georges Prevention Institute is based on working on adolescence for over the past decade.

He has developed many programs concerning the improvement of health issues to the adolescents. One of the areas out there is the health through meditation.

Does meditation helps – improving the overall health? Does it help the young-adults to be healthy?

He has been on a research to some vital factors like – does meditation lays any impact on the blood pressure and if so, whether or not the blood pressure can be controlled through meditation?

In answer to these, he found – YES! It did help in cardio vascular health of these adolescents, if they meditate twice a day. He also found that meditation helps improving education overall. He emphasizes on the point that when you are stressed, it’s very hard to concentrate and thus hard to do well. On the contrary, when the mind is quiet and calm, it prepares you to learning. And really its true with all of us, as the mind is calm and peaceful, we get prepared for anything in life – whether it is office, preparing for the exams, driving, working etc. It really does matters, the results under such situation are always better.

Meditation is your maintenance of mental thoughts and images. When you reach this stage, your mind is at its peak of efficiency since it becomes more sensitive to details in its surroundings. It is also paradoxical in a sense since you are able to divert those external thoughts, despite awareness of its existence.

Dr. Barnes also found that the adolescents, who meditate twice a day, behave better. Meditation relaxes mind and gives peace and also increases body’s immune system. So begin meditating now and see how incredible meditation is, for us. You can try to start meditating only for a week, with just 20 minutes in the morning and again 20 minutes to 30 minutes at night and check results in your relationships, work-life, personal health and overall peace of mind.

So take the plunge, try meditation for this week, and see you have slightly, but significantly, perhaps a better week.
