Meditation has numerous health benefits, many associated with reducing and even reversing the signs of ageing, including skin, memory, energy, concentration, blood pressure. You don’t need any equipment or special skills. Rose-Marie outlines the benefits and provides simple how-to instructions in her post here.

Recent research reveals that meditation lowers the stress chemical in the blood called cortisol. Cortisol kills brain cells and leads to cognitive decline. Mediation also increases the blood flow to the brain, which results in less memory loss. It also lowers blood pressure and other markers of ageing and enhances psychological well-being. One of the most important discoveries is that meditation preserves the length of the telomeres (end cap of our DNA) wich is a very important marker of ageing and longevity: longer telomers = less illness and longer life.
