If practiced for a long period of time, then mindfulness meditation can be extremely helpful. Especially with the busy and stressful schedules people have nowadays, everyone can benefit from a bit of stress relief through meditation.

Improves Memory

Maybe your day-to-day memory is really bad or you’re preparing for an important exam. Either way, your memory is very important for you. Meditation can help with improving your memory. As for most people, they lack mindfulness, which results in bad memory. Therefore, practicing mindfulness and awareness will help with good memory.

Improves Focus

Meditation is all about practicing mindfulness and awareness. Meditation improves your cognition and your ability to focus for a longer period of time. In fact, meditation is a far better answer to get yourself focused than coffee as most people seem to think.

Helps Overcome Addiction

Studies have found out that meditation, specially ‘Vipassana’ meditation can help with overcoming alcohol and drug addiction. Meditation helps you to focus and keep your mind from straying towards wrong things. Suggest meditation to anyone you know who is battling with an addiction. It will really help them in their life.

Helps Manage Anger

Meditation helps to calm your mind and body. It helps you to clear the storm in your mind as you focus on your breathing or on one thought. When you’re angry, your thoughts run haywire, and meditation can help to gather these thoughts and think rationally.

Sri Lanka promotes meditation quite a lot. Even in schools, they teach children to meditate, which is very useful as young minds are very impressionable. If you are also looking for a getaway and to engage in a healing experience, you will have a good time at a Sri Lanka wellness resort, which are quite popular in the country.
