Meditations for Every Mode

Roundup: Meditations for Every Mode

There is now ample scientific research that proves something meditation practitioners have suspected for millennia – that meditation has myriad powerful benefits on our brains and bodies

Here are some of the studied, proven benefits you can look forward to with a consistent meditation practice:

With all of these promising results, we frequently encourage patients to add meditation to their holistic weight loss or self-care journeys. 

The key to receiving these benefits, though, is consistency.  Just like physical muscle can only be built through consistency (e.g. going to the gym a few times a week, not just once a month), you’ll generally only gain meditation’s benefits by consistently meditating.  Try meditating for 1 minute 5x a week to start, building up to 5 minutes daily as your practice grows.

Another key: finding meditations you love.  There are millions of meditation teachers, styles and genres to choose from – it’s wonderful to have choice, but it can be overwhelming!

Below, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite FREE meditations across the internet* for every mood, need and mindset.  The meditations we’ve curated are all guided, though you can certainly practice meditating on your own, unguided.
