How can sitting down, standing, or even walking while meditating help you?

You’ve probably heard about how some people have cured themselves through meditation, but there’s hardly been any scientific evidence to prove the benefits. But new technologies and new research are beginning to change this.

Scientists are starting to realize that all the hype over meditation may in fact be true.

It’s kind of funny that we would question something that’s been around for thousands of years, yet when science makes a new discovery, then it gets accepted.

I’m sure most people don’t realize how science gets things wrong from time to time. Some of these mistakes in hindsight seem to be ridiculous.

Here are some of the proven facts about meditation that are changing people’s perceptions:

  • Cultivates healthy habits that lead to weight loss
  • Improves digestion and lowers blood pressure
  • Increases your focus and attention

I meditate and knew about these facts years ago, but now science is finally catching up with what meditators have known for thousands of years, and soon you may find yourself next to me out in a park meditating.

There are plenty of meditation practices, and there’s no hard and fast rule—the best one for you is whatever you feel comfortable with.
