Meditation obviously has its benefits, but often times people overlook the importance of this practice. Science has shown, although more evidence-based studies are needed, that mediation reduces stress and has both short and long term epigenetic effects on our DNA. It’s not well known that the effects are so drastic since we have no idea what is going on within our bodies on a biological/molecular level. We respond to everything around us, ranging from our social and physical environment. Everything impacts us whether we know or think it, or not. Meditation can actually halt, or even reverse the negative epigenetic marks imprinted on our DNA from harmful exposures. Simple acts, 5-10 minutes of meditation a day, can have immediate impacts on our overall health and well-being, even if you don’t have any idea it’s occurring. You’ll likely feel better, have more energy, and mental clarity, but deep down the effects are progressively changing your DNA for the future. And it doesn’t stop there. Transgenerational inheritance can be planted for generations to come. Who would have thought? Trust me, the evidence may be lacking, but one day, this will all come to light and you will be wondering why you never thought to take 5-10 minutes per day to simply close your eyes and breathe consciously .
