Originating as a component of the Eastern religions more than 5,000 years ago, meditation has been proven beneficial in alleviating stress, lowering blood pressure, improving concentration, alleviating insomnia, and creating a heightened state of relaxed awareness. Regular practitioners report an overall increase in happiness and peace of mind, as well as a generally more positive outlook. Meditation can also be used to achieve a higher state of spiritual awareness and understanding.
Some individuals have even used meditation to transcend the body’s natural pain thresholds, achieving seemingly superhuman feats of endurance and pain tolerance through intense meditation. Meditation can be practiced by anyone, regardless of age or physical health. It requires no special equipment or tools . . .
