There are actually no downsides to meditation but here are some benefits:
Doctors may suggest that you meditate in order to squash inner turmoil that often leads to physical ailments. Meditating will not only provide you peace but according to the Science Daily will decrease the chance of heart disease incredibly.
Reduction in Stress
Being at work, looking after children, running errands all day and so on can cause major stress and headaches. Spending just 15 minutes meditating in a quiet area will clear your mind and help to control your thoughts. Your judgements will be better made and decisions will be well thought out.
Release your inner demons through meditating and regain some creativity that was buried beneath stress and negativity. When deep in a trance, you may find some inspiration for a project you’ve been working on or a holiday you desire. Meditation will also increase productivity thereafter.
Meditation will transform a negative attitude and widen one’s capacity for love and fun. In a good way, it makes you self-conscious about the present moment and about personal aims and ambitions – keeping everything in perspective. Along with your breathing, body and mind, your life should be better synchronised through meditation.
