Why Meditate?

Did you know that practicing mindfulness meditation has many health benefits. Meditation not only helps us to control our thoughts and remain in the present moment, but it also helps us to regulate what is happening throughout our body and mind. Regular meditation practice allows the brain to release Serotonin; a chemical neurotransmitter that naturally occurs in the brain, which is known to regulate anxiety, increase happiness, and stabilize mood swings.

Therefore when we practice meditation, we allow the release of Serotonin to increase relaxation in the body and mind, to help manage physical pain within the body and improve our overall wellness.
