Feel Good Friday: Take Time to Meditate
Happy Friday, everyone! If your week has been a stressful blur, then you can definitely benefit from taking a few minutes to mediate. Meditation is an easy and simple way to improve your day to day happiness. Best of all, it can improve your wellbeing physically, mentally, and emotionally. Check out some of the benefits of meditation below.

- It reduces stress. We all know the many negative effects that stress has on the body. However, meditation helps to bring your body back to a calm state and helps it repair itself.
- It slows the aging process. Who wouldn’t want fewer gray hairs and wrinkles! Studies have shown that meditation changes brain physiology to slow aging. Mediators are shown to have longer telomeres, which are the caps on chromosomes indicative of biological age.
