Besides your diet, exercise and sleep, managing stress is a must! If the food you eat is the fuel that keeps your body functioning, meditation is fuel that helps you manage your mind. And yes, meditation can help you losing a stress size! Let’s see how.
What are the physical effects of meditating regularly and being mindful?
Research shows that meditation increases protein levels, reduces blood pressure, pulse rate, and cortisol levels, improves chronic pain, strengthens muscles. It can significantly improve anxiety and panic disorders, and if that is not enough, it also changes the brains physical structure, which is age- related, enhancing cognitive performance, concentration and memory.
When we are stressed, the adrenal glands release cortisol: if cortisol levels are high due to ongoing stress, this interferes with gastric function. This can then create and increase food intolerances. Stress also increases blood sugar levels, suppress the immune system, increases blood pressure and breaks down muscle! And that’s where meditation can help improving your stress management tactic and reduce the risk of gaining that extra size.
