Reasons to Meditate

  • Over time you become less reactive. “Oh, my God! Did you see the way that guy cut me off? Holy cow! I coulda been killed!” Huge adrenaline rush. Bad for blood pressure.
  • Over time, you become more responsive. “Hmm. That guy is gonna cut right in front of me. I’d better slow down so I don’t plow into him.” You get where you’re going far more relaxed and able to enjoy the party.
  • The groups you participate in become more mellow. Violence in your neighborhood decreases. Really! Experiments were done with 1% of the population using a number of US cities.
  • Blood pressure goes down.
  • Heart disease probability decreases by about 80%.Cancer probability decreases by about 50%.
  • Hot flashes associated with menopause decrease by 90% in people who meditate twice a day for 20 minutes.
  • You stay younger (with yoga in the mix, you grow younger).
  • You sleep better.
  • If you have chronic pain, it decreases.
  • Overall, your life is healthier and more fun.
  • Meditation can be a doorway to psychic abilities as well, but that’s a whole other booklet.
