Meditation has many proven benefits. It increases serotonin, which influences mood and behaviour (Low levels of serotonin are associated with depression, headaches, and insomnia). Meditation also enhances energy, strength and vigour, helps maintain blood pressure, and hones concentration.
Research has shown that just 20 minutes of meditation is equivalent to two hours of deep sleep.
