Science now proves there is a pill for you to take daily that will reduce stress, improve your relationships, make your brain faster, your sex better, your immune system stronger, give you more energy and love life effortlessly. You in? Well, I have news for you, there is no pill. But there is meditation! The benefits of meditation are way bigger than most people realise. Most people who start meditating and realise the benefits of meditation often keep it to themselves because they don’t want to be made fun of or too many people have put them down in the past. But I am here to let you know some of the most important benefits of meditation in order to persuade you to get started meditating right away.
Some people will stop reading here. Because..are you kidding? I haven’t got time to meditate.
If that’s you – keep reading.
Some people would have been disappointed that there isn’t a pill, a quick fix, an easy way out.
If that’s you – keep reading.
Because as you continue reading you will begin to comprehend that all the effects I mentioned above really are easily and effortlessly achieved through a simple meditation practice of just 20 minutes per day.

Studies have shown that after just 4 sessions of meditation (YES 4 SESSIONS) it will enhance your cognition and ability to sustain attention. So you will focus better throughout the day, become less distracted by tasks, improve your brain efficiency and not have to rely on stimulants to get you going.
You will without a doubt strengthen your immune system, release suppressed pain/stressors that you have been holding the body, boost your energy levels, increase longevity and balance out your hormones. Studies have also shown that meditation has helped to reduce risks of chronic disease like heart disease and Alzheimer’s, whilst decreasing cellular level inflammation and lowering blood pressure.
