Meditation can help reduce stress dramatically


When pressure becomes stress, the mind can often have trouble coping with its onslaught. The root of stress can often be difficult to understand. This is where meditation comes into play as a resolution to physiological and psychological stress.


Stress can develop from multiple sources such as - from work pressures, often cited as too much work to complete in too little time or can develop within family life. Stress can develop from moving house, pregnancy, old age, tiredness, physcial strain, raising children, bodily reactions and illness, addictions - smoking, drinking, over eating, under eating etc, the environment where you live or even lack of sleep.


Work seems to be a frequent occuring factor in relation to stress for many people. Some common workplace factors that can contribute to stress include:


  • Excessive workload
  • Resonsibility without authority
  • Insufficient opportunities for change or workload balance
  • Low managerial support
  • Poor work relations with colleagues or manager
  • Personality conflicts
  • Bullying, harassment and discrimiation
  • Poor communications
  • Continual or rapid change to your role
  • Insufficient training
  • Lack of job security
  • Frustrated career development


There are many different symptoms of stress such as 

  • Comfort eating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased smoking, caffeine or alcohol
  • Irritability and aggression
  • Forgetfullness
  • Moodiness and sulking
  • Insomnia
  • Withdrawal from social contact
  • Obsessive behaviours
  • Crying


No single sign, will, in itself, indicate stress, but clusters of signs may be an indication that something is not right and action may need to be taken.

Stress is very counteractive and can alter your disposition towards increased levels of anxiety, de-motivation, low self esteem, anger, sadness or depression.

Individuals who stressed may experience headaches, weight gain/loss, frequent colds or infections, skin disorders, nervous ticks, tiredness/lethargy and aches and pains. The thought flow might also become an experience of negative thinking, obsessive thinking, indecisivenes, poor concentration, cynicism and criticism of self or others.


Meditation unwinds all the deep rooted problems,feelings, thoughts, opinions and experiences to allow the individual to return to a calm, peaceful clear and happy state. Meditation specifically allows the practioner to experience the deepest levels of mental activity where rejuvenation can become most effective.
