The benefits of meditation are extensive and begin from the moment you start practising — even if all you seem to notice for the first little while is a busy mind that likes to follow its own thoughts!
Cognitive science has shown that the more our minds wander, the more likely we are to worry about the future (which creates anxiety) and ruminate on the past (which depresses us). For example we may obsess about what we didn't do or say ‘right’, or worry about all the things we have yet to do. This creates enormous amounts of stress and inflammation in our minds and bodies. Neuroscience has finally caught up with the Buddha and we now know that overthinking leads to increased feelings of unhappiness. By contrast, LEARNING TO REST IN THE PRESENT MOMENT CALMS OUR NERVOUS SYSTEM and makes us HAPPIER.
