The Real Meaning of Meditation

The Real Meaning of Meditation

By: Chass ArmstrongPosted: Section: Parent Resources

At Red Mountain Sedona, our experienced and professional staff deliver a wide range of clinical services to adolescents experiencing a variety of issues in their lives. Our therapeutic healing programs are targeted towards teens with behavioral, mental and emotional issues or teens experiencing issues with addiction, academic failure or intellectual difficulties. Just one of the clinical services we deliver is meditation.

What is Meditation?

Many people do not understand what is meant by meditation. Some common misbeliefs are that it is just sitting quietly or that it is an activity involving prayer and worship. However, meditation is anything that you do that creates awareness. Some people believe that meditation is more than a physical act; it is a way of life. Meditation originates from the Buddhist religion. Although there are many different forms of meditation and some of these have several stages; breathing, relaxation and removing stress from external influences are at the center of meditating.

How Does Meditation Benefit Physical Health?

Although people often associate meditation with relaxation, there are many studies that show there are physical benefits to meditation. The way in which a person benefits physically from meditation is often personal to them. However, there are two specific areas of physical health that are proven to benefit from meditation. These are the lowering of blood pressure and the improvement of the immune system. Other health problems that some evidence suggests meditation can help to improve include psoriasis and fibromyalgia (2).

Can Meditation Also Support Emotional Well-Being?

The main purpose of meditating is to improve emotional well-being and it is for this reason that we, at Red Mountain Sedona, use this type of therapy with young people. The major benefit of meditation to emotional well-being is stress reduction. Reducing stress levels is proven to have positive effects on both physical and mental health. Teens who suffer from depression, anxiety or addiction may all benefit from therapies that involve reducing stress levels (2).

Any parent who feels that their teen would benefit from meditation, or one of the other clinical services we deliver, should contact Red Mountain Sedona today. Once the initial contact is made, our team can advise you on the best course of action for your adolescent. Once this is in place, our team of experienced professionals can support your child in resolving their issues, thus improving their life. Not only will this benefit them as an individual, it is also advantageous for every member of the family.
