Meditate to stay healthy this winter

Meditation is a holistic approach to strengthening the immune system, and scientific data prove the positive effects of meditation on the body and mind. Here are 3 key things you should know:

  1. Meditation boosts antibodies. Best known for neutralising foreign agents like viruses and bacteria, antibodies are paramount to a healthy immune system, thereby making meditation a frontrunner for the immune system’s best exercise award.
  2. The immune system is intimately linked to thoughts. Your immune system, responds to both negative and positive thoughts, meditation creates the perfect environment for the immune system to flourish. This means better health, more energy, and greater happiness.
  3. Meditation melts away stress. Meditation, through its ability to undo the damage caused by daily stress, is your immune system’s greatest ally. When you focus in meditation, you release stressful thoughts and remove yourself from the daily pressures and demands on your body, mind, and emotions. This increases oxygen uptake and blood flow, while allowing feelings of relaxation, love, trust, and well-being to permeate.

Try to meditate daily and see the results. Meditate on your own or in a group with a guide or teacher. Enta holds 8 week meditation terms for those who enjoy learning new techniques to better get into that meditative state on Tuesday evenings.
