Meditation Really Can Help You Handle Stress Better

A new study published in the journal Psychiatry Research suggests that meditation can help the body to respond to various stressful situations.meditation

People with anxiety disorder participated in the study. All of them took an 8-week course of mindfulness meditation where they learned to focus on present moment and accept their difficult thoughts and feelings. In the end of the study, the researchers found that upon the completion of the course the participants demonstrated reduced levels of stress hormone and markers of inflammation during an artificially created stressful event.

Study researcher Dr. Elizabeth A. Hoge, an associate professor of psychiatry at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC, says: “Mindfulness meditation training is a relatively inexpensive and low-stigma treatment approach, and these findings strengthen the case that it can improve resilience to stress.”
