The antidote to anxiety
When a person experiences physical or psychological stress, physical changes have a negative effect on the body. Stress triggers your fight-or-flight reaction which is your body’s way of preparing to react to a stressful situation. If your body continues to experience this stress continuously, the effects to your physical and mental health can be devastating. This stressful lifestyle can cause heart disorders, hypertension, and even lead to panic attacks.
Western medical science often uses pharmaceuticals to reduce stress and anxiety. The problem with these pharmaceuticals is that they are merely a Band-Aid at best and often either don’t work at all or cause problems that are even worse than the originals. On the other hand, learning mindfulness meditation can help you cope with stress and enable you to handle any situation that arises without being rattled.
Scientific studies have found that mindfulness meditation helps calm the body when you are exposed to a fight-or-flight situation. It does this by decreasing muscle tension and reducing blood pressure, heart and respiratory rate and oxygen consumption which are all beneficial to your body.
Additionally, the immediate psychological benefits gained from regularly practicing meditation can help prevent panic attacks. Mindfulness meditation can be considered an “anti-stress agent” to help you remain calm and relaxed.
