I’ve referred a number of times to scientific studies that indicate the benefits of meditation and mindfulness.
It’s not just the case of an occasional study by a random individual that sometimes throws up a desirable result.
Far from it. There are numerous published studies under scientific conditions that regularly, indeed consistently, point to the benefits of meditation.
There are quite a lot.
Here’s a great summary of these by Giovanni Dienstmann.
It lists and discusses 76 benefits that have been experienced by people who meditate.
The article references many leading scientific and mass readership publications such as Sage Journals, ScienceDaily, Wiley Online and Time Magazine.
I highly recommend having a look.
Alternatively, below are two infographics from the same source that show these benefits.
Despite these benefits, you may still feel a wish not to meditate. So here are some excuses to help you avoid doing so.
