Meditation as a stress buster

Monday, 28th September 2020

Our life is moving at a break-neck pace. We are plagued by fears, anxieties, stress and restlessness all the time. These issues are actually inevitable in today’s life.


All these issues though start in the mind can, with time, bring about many unwanted physiological changes in your body. So, if you want to have a healthy body you need to have a healthy mind in the first place. Now, how do you fix your tempest-tossed mind? Meditation is the answer.


Meditation can well be defined as an exercise for your mind. It is a session of mindfulness that aims at turning your feelings and thoughts off for a certain period of time thereby offering you a sane sense of observation & perspective and training in consciousness & awareness. So, if you wish to beat your stress and calm your mind down amid all craziness and chaos that’s going on around you, you need to make meditation a part of your daily routine.


 While talking about the meditation benefits, Shraddha Iyer who is the master yoga instructor at Sarva Yoga Centre says, "Studies has proven meditation can help reduce the secretion of cytokines, a chemical which is released in response to stress, hence reducing mood swings and anxiety, and in the long run fighting depression too. Meditation can help reduce self doubts, social anxiety and also increase self confidence. Overall, it's a good addition to your daily routine as it can help in many aspects of one's life."


In order to meditate, you need to focus on the way you breathe. It improves your mental abilities and helps you tame your over stressed mind.


According to Yoga trainer Shraddha Iyer, the deep breathing pattern sends forth a message to your nervous system and that results in the calming down of the mind and body. "If you notice when you are angry or emotional, you breathe faster and heavier. Deep breathing, specially diaphragmatic breathing, effectively sends more vital energy/oxygen to the body, which helps the body to work efficiently and reduce the heart rate," adds Shraddha.


"Many mental healthcare providers across the world too suggest deep breathing exercises and yogic meditation for people with severe mental health issues, mainly because along with all its other benefits, meditation also helps you increase focus, increase your presence of mind and improve one's emotional intelligence," said Shraddha further.
