While embarking on a ‘cleansing’ break in a secluded area of the UK surrounded by some of the most beautiful settings in the country, you can not only enjoy luxury treehouse holidays UK– based) but also the ideal base for some spectacular meditation.
Whether you are a novice or a meditation pro, glamping and all that encompasses the idea ties in perfectly with a mindful, wellness-orientated vacation.
Here’s five great reasons why:
Increase Your Happiness
Studies have highlighted the increases of brain signalling in the left side of the prefrontal cortex, (where positive emotions form), while activity also decreases in the opposite side, that is accountable for negative emotions. The other benefits of meditation, several of which are included further into this article, also contribute to improved overall well-being.
Cardiovascular and Immune Health
Through the practice of meditation, the induction of relaxation occurs. This causes blood vessels to open up and consequently, your blood pressure to drop. In 2008 a significant study was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. The findings cited that 40 of 60 high blood pressure patients who began meditating were able to be alleviated of their blood pressure medication, while also improving immunity at the same time.
As we are all well aware, stress generates anxiety and agitation, and it’s often a sensation we have to deal with at some point, or on some level. By practicing some form of meditation, it creates a way for people to take control of their own nervous system and emotions.
Research has pointed to the fact that meditation leads to an improved ability to multitask. Meditation has frequently been associated with a range of things that lead to an enlarged ability to focus and improved memory. Greater concentration is linked to the augmented energy meditation can provide.
Research suggests that that by practicing meditation it changes brain physiology to slow ageing. It appears to preserve cognition in those practicing, as well as helping meditators to possess more grey matter – quite literally having more brain cells. To say meditation is believed to lengthen life might be a step too far, but there is certainly something about meditation that is associated with longer telomeres (a part of the cells that affect our age). Could it be that it’s because there are lower levels of stress and its detrimental effects on the body?
If you practice meditation we would love to hear how it has affected your life, particularly if you tie it in with the glamping lifestyle.
