Scientific studies continue to confirm what yogis already know about meditation. They are going as far as saying that it is better than morphine. Can you say, 'Goodbye Medication, Hello Meditation'?

When you start meditating once a day, even for just a few minutes at a time, you’ll notice a significant jump in your health and wellness!

Meditation and mindfulness practices are widely accepted as part of a balanced lifestyle and many people believe that the medicinal qualities of meditation can have a direct impact on physical elements such as sleeping patterns, pain management, and even blood pressure.

The feeling of knowing where to start can be slightly overwhelming to some, which is the exact opposite to how we want you to feel, so here is one of our favorite, short, 8-minute meditations from Tom Cronin. This is the perfect daily meditation to help you get started in this practice and feel the health benefits: 

 We often hear people say they don’t have time to meditate. We all know it’s good for us but we mostly put ourselves last when it comes to self-care. How about building meditation into your morning or afternoon routine where you give yourself just 10-15 minutes a day to ‘be present', to be still, and to calm the mind. Use it to brighten your spirit in the morning or use it to help you fall asleep more peacefully at night. 

This is one of the reasons why we created our 11 Days of Meditation & Gratitude on Food Matters TV. We've compiled daily meditations to fit in your meditation practice in less than 15 minutes per day.
