Cultural Currency - Why meditation offers extraordinary benefits.
Meditation has proven to drop the metabolic rate as much as 12-16%, significantly lower than during sleep. This profound rest aids in the release of stress, which can be a key factor in how we respond. The regular practice of meditation often yields a clear mind. A clearer mind yields clearer problem solving abilities, increased productivity, greater effectiveness at work. Meditation research also proves higher levels of compassion, and an improved personal life. Meditation can offer a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Equally important, the ability to cultivate compassion and other positive human qualities lays the foundation for an ethical framework unattached to any philosophy or religion, which could have a profound beneficial effect on all aspects of human societies (Scientific American, November 2014).
