Another Self-Care Tip For 2021: Meditation

added on: January 20, 2021

To close out our January 2021 blogs, we’d like to share another invaluable health care tip that your Wilmington holistic and biological believes in and practices wholeheartedly. It’s all about meditating. We’re sure you’ve heard or read about how it’s greatly beneficial to help reduce unnecessary stress, but there are so many more advantages you need to know about the powers of mindfulness and meditation.

What’s the Best Way to Meditate?
Did you know that our brain waves operate using five distinctive frequencies? They are extremely complex but are useful to us because they create different states of mind or moods. According to findings published in Science Daily, the best way to meditate is to do it in a way that’s nondirective. This means you’re not pursuing a specific experience or a particular state of mind. You can allow yourself to think freely and give your mind permission to wander without being overly involved. Allow stressful thoughts to pass effortlessly instead of specifically focusing on getting rid of them. The article says the bottom line is this: “Nondirective meditation yields more marked changes in electrical brain wave activity associated with wakeful, relaxed attention, than just resting without any specific mental technique.”

Feel All of The Benefits
Now that you know the best way to let your mind wander, you can get started with your own meditation practice. Your holistic and biological dentist in Wilmington knows you’re going to love how you feel and even look after establishing and practicing your mindfulness and meditation ritual.
