When faced with just every day stress, or more severe, a loss, a diagnosis or going through treatment as yourself or as a caregiver, the body and mind can react with emotional distress, anxious thoughts, and/orÂ depression.Â Having an overall hard time adjusting to your situation can create a significant amount of stress on and in the body.
Stress will affect your sleep, your energy levels and immune function, as well as relationships with yourself and the people you love.
Cultivating a meditation practice will not only make scientific proven lasting, positive shifts in the brain itself, but will help bring you to the present moment. Allowing the body and mind to respond, cope and deal with a sense of peace and calming.Â
Meditation can help enable you to be a more active participant in your life and your recovery.
