The importance of developing a consistent practice.
Last week we learned why mediation is so important for everyone and just how easy it is to get started. This week will we discuss why consistency is the key to reaping the benefits.
Our bodies have this great system of fight or flight that came in very handy in older times when you were about to be attacked by a sabre-tooth tiger. It ramped up blood pressure and stress hormones to prepare your body for a good run or a good fight. It also suppresses your immune system and digestive systems to save energy for the things you need to save your life from the attack.
Unfortunately, these days, the threats in our lives are less life-threatening but equally stressful on the body. These are things like and frustrating job/boss, taking care of your family, or relationship issues.
The biggest difference between these two scenarios is that once the tiger was gone, your stress was gone. These days, those stressors like your workplace or family circumstances don’t go away. This is why we need to bring meditation into our lives regularly to help our body come down from this fight or flight mode so that we can be at our healthiest.
Remember the systems that get adjusted when we are stressed? (Blood pressure, stress hormones, immune system, digestive system). With chronic stress, they don’t get to come back down to normal and this can have detrimental effects on your overall health.
