Meditation & Why You Should Be Practicing It!

June 26, 2016

Here at #LunchJars HQ we understand the importance of not only having a healthy body, but also a healthy mind.


We believe that along with a wholesome diet and regular exercise, it is also important to practice mindfulness. That’s why we incorporate at least one 20 minute meditation session into our day… yep, daily!



Okay. We can see you rolling your eyes from here, but stay with us as we delve into 5 benefits of daily mediation:


It lowers stress.

Research proves that practicing meditation is linked to decreasing levels of the stress hormone cortisol, anxiety and depression.


It makes you happier & healthier.

Research shows that meditation increases life satisfaction, positive emotions, boosts your immune function, decreases inflammation and pain.


It changes your brain (literally).

Meditation increases yours brains Cortical thickness - related to introspection & attention, your Grey Matter - related to memory & thought and your Brain Volume – related to emotion regulation, positive emotions and self-control.


It makes you a better person to be around.

Research has proven that meditation will boost your social connection, reducing loneliness. It also improves your patience, empathy and compassion and makes you a more helpful person.


It can help you be more creative.

Regular meditation can also promote ‘Divergent Thinking’ which allows new ideas to be generated more frequently.



If these aren’t reason enough to get you on the meditation “band wagon”, don’t forget its only 20 minutes in your entire day. Why not try it as soon as you wake up in the morning, or when you get home from work in the evening.
