Meditate to Get the Best Weight Loss Results
Over the past years, meditation has enjoyed an increase in popularity as more people realize that meditation techniques can do for their health and outlook on life. This ancient practice has been around since the Stone Age and has become trendy in recent years.
Now, it’s become more than a trend as studies indicate that it delivers health benefits beyond what we originally thought. In 2018, meditation techniques are poised to become more popular than ever as science releases more information about its amazing benefits.
And meditation offers even more benefits than we originally thought. For example, new studies indicate that besides stress reduction, meditation can also help balance your hormones and that it surpasses the most popular diet plans for losing weight.
Now we know that dieting is actually a bad idea. It may cause inflammation and cause changes in your metabolism that can produce weight gain, binging and even eating disorders.
Research on the effects of meditation on weight in a controlled group shows that those who practiced meditation lost more weight than the dieters. Meditation actually changes the way you eat because you’re thinking more with your mind than giving in to cravings.
With meditation you’re focusing your attention on the present moment to have a calm and clear path to success, especially when it comes to stress. Stress is the catalyst which drives many people to eat more or eat in an unhealthy manner.
You’ll become more aware of the thoughts and urges you have when it comes to food by engaging in a more mindful way of dealing with weight loss – rather than a strict diet plan which may result in more emotional eating habits.
Another benefit of meditation is that it doesn’t cost anything. All you need is a quiet place, a comfortable position and an attitude that you’re going to focus your attention on something else – a phrase (mantra), your breathing or something else to relax you.
For meditation to be successful, you must make a commitment to stop what you’re doing and become more aware of what’s within and surrounding you. This may take some time to master, but when you do you’ll have transformed your thinking to a more positive way of looking at things.
Meditation, in the New Year of 2018, will garner much more attention than in the past as a way to support positive changes in your life and helping you to become more in touch with your body’s needs. Learn all you can now and be ahead of the crowd.
