Meditation Increases Focus and Reduces Stress

If you haven’t already tried meditating in order to focus, then this article might just entice you to do so. Meditation increases focus and reduces stress according to Heidi Thompson who has recently written a book called CALM FOCUS JOY: The Power of Breath Awareness.

Thompson writes, “The world’s most valuable resource is the human mind. Let us do everything within our power to protect, nurture, and develop this precious commodity. We know that happiness and health are achievable through the cultivation of calmness, focus, and joy; therefore, by establishing peace and happiness within, and empowering children in the same way, we will have taken a giant step in transforming our world into a better place.”

I think a number of people turn their noses up at meditation without having a full understanding of the benefits it can bring to your life. This is not the first time that I have read how meditation increases focus and reduces stress. It may just be worth picking up a copy of this book to see how it could make a difference in your life. What are your thoughts on meditation?

Focus Through Meditation

Many people would not feel comfortable with meditation. I for one, when I was younger, would look at someone strangely if they were meditating on Brighton Beach in broad daylight. Little did I know back then, how beneficial it is for your brain, as well as taking you into a state of deep relaxation. You can establish focus through meditation and become mindful of thoughts, feelings and sensations. Not only that, but according to UCLA researchers, it can strengthen the connections between brain cells and actually thicken the brain!

UCLA researchers have long studied the awesome powers that meditation has on the human brain. Two years ago, they found that specific regions within the brains of long-term meditators were larger and had more gray matter than those who did not practice the ancient tradition. MRI scans found that the hippocampus and other areas known for regulating emotions had larger volumes, and therefore allow for well-adjusted responses to “whatever life throws your way.”

The deeper I get into the world of entrepreneurialism, the more people I speak with who tell me they gain focus through meditation. It seems to be becoming more and more popular, possibly as today’s world gets increasingly hectic.
