Today’s topic of our video is to provide ways by which meditation can help you improve your living standards. Meditation is a practice by which an individual can focus on one particular thought or object. It helps them to remain mindful of their thoughts and reasonings. In just a scenario we know that most of the time people are always confused when the question comes to making a decision. Their thoughts become cloudy and vague. They become unable to focus on one thing only. So meditation is for such masses to help them remain focused on one particular thought. Let’s get straight into this video. But before that don’t forget to like, share and subscribe. Let’s jump right into it.

Reduces stress

The foremost benefit of meditation is that it helps you to reduce the stress levels of your body. In the present era, almost every individual faces stressful conditions. Some people face it due to business matters. Students face it due to the pressure of exams or studies. In short, everyone is surrounded by some tension or stress in their lives. According to science, how this stress mechanism exactly works is that we have adrenal glands just above the kidneys that release stress hormones mainly called cortisol. Some people even develop a stressed belly due to extremely stressed-out conditions. What does meditation do in this scenario? it not only helps you to cool down but also lets you think of another pathway. So that you do not remain in an unpleasant situation. Stress only increases your blood pressure and can cause hypertension. So it is necessary to bring down the levels of cortisol in the body. Meditation should be practiced in every household to remain healthy and fit.

Improves insomnia

Insomnia is a condition where a person is unable to sleep. He cannot sleep due to the increased level of stress hormones in the body. Since increased levels of cortisol can lead to anxiety disorders. It automatically decreases your amount of sleep. It leads you to restlessness, moodiness, irritability, and some other psychological symptoms. An increased level of stress hormones reduces your sleep automatically. A person can sleep only if he is relaxed and in a calm state. By relaxing your body from head to toe you can ease your thoughts and can organize your thoughts. This is the best way to help reduce your tangled thoughts and can prove to be beneficial in relieving insomnia and correcting your sleep cycle. Nowadays it is a common problem among the masses that they cannot fall asleep at night. This sleeplessness is due to anxiety disorders. This can be overcome by practicing meditation on a daily basis.

Decreased blood pressure

Meditation not only lessens the anxious conditions but also decreases the high levels of blood pressure that are mainly due to stressful conditions. People with high blood pressure mainly suffer because their blood pressure rises due to increased overthinking. You can say everything in the human body is connected. Our brain has a pituitary gland in it. It mainly controls the metabolism of our body. It also affects the adrenal glands of the body that are responsible for controlling the number of stress hormones. Increased levels of stress hormones eventually increase blood pressure. In this way, the human body is connected. Hypertensive people in Pakistan are mainly due to the stressed conditions in our country. Meditation controls the flight or fright response of our body which is under the control of the parasympathetic nervous system. Meditation cools down and relaxes the nerves that are responsible for the flight or fright response.

In the end, I must say we should normalize practicing mediation. Most people think of it as a traditional method and mostly rely on medication. But they should take meditation into account that it is a useful method to reduce stress levels in the body. We should raise awareness among people about this as well. So that some of them only rely on medication. That’s all for today’s video. Hope you guys enjoyed it. Take care bye-bye
