Self-Reflection by Harnessing Meditation



Harnessing Meditation to Cope with Stress and Anxiety

Fasting can cause headaches due to low blood sugar. Let's discuss strategies to safeguard your health during fasting.[1,2,3]​

Stress Distress

Stress and anxiety affect our overall well-being, causing overproduction of cortisol and negatively impacting brain function, the immune system, and organs. It can contribute to headaches, anxiety, depression, heart disease, and even premature death [2, 4].

The Science Behind Meditation:[1,2,3]

​Incorporating meditation techniques for self-reflection can help us effectively combat these challenges.​

  • Stress Hormone Regulation: Meditation helps regulate cortisol, the body's primary stress hormone, reducing its harmful effects on the body.
  • Brain Changes: Research shows that meditation can alter brain structures associated with emotions, memory, and self-awareness, reducing stress.

  • ​​Neurotransmitter Balance: Meditation can alleviate anxiety and depression by boosting "feel-good" neurotransmitters like serotonin and endorphins.

How is Meditation Helpful:

  • Lower Blood Pressure: Regular meditation is associated with reduced blood pressure, lowering the risk of heart disease.
  • Enhanced Immunity: Meditation can boost the immune system's functioning, making the body more resilient to illnesses.

  • Improved Sleep: Better sleep quality is a byproduct of meditation, vital for mental health.

Psychological Insights:

  • Mindfulness: It enhances awareness of negative thought patterns, aiding in their control and replacement with positive ones.
  • Emotional Regulation: Meditation cultivates emotional intelligence, enabling individuals to manage stress-triggered emotions better.

  • Respite Response: Meditation triggers the body's natural relaxation response, counteracting the "fight or flight" stress response.

Let's start your Meditation Journey:

Meditation takes many forms, including concentration, heart-centred, mindfulness, tai chi, qigong, transcendental, & walking meditation.

Seek Guidance: Consult a healthcare professional or meditation expert for personalized advice.

Practice Regularly: Begin with short sessions and gradually extend the duration as you become more comfortable.

Be Patient: The benefits of meditation may take time to manifest fully.

During Fasting, it is essential to prioritize your health and approach the sacred time with mindfulness to ensure a fulfilling experience.

Wholistic Mind-Body Medicine:[4]

Regular meditation for a week or two can improve your mood and reduce stress, bringing inner peace and poise to your busy life.​

Remember, a calm mind is a strong mind.
