Meditation is also completely FREE! It requires no special equipment, and is not complicated to learn.

Bottom line, there is nothing but positive to be gained from it! With such a huge list of benefits, the question you should ask yourself is, site, “why am I not meditating yet?”

If you need a point to start from, you should try guided meditation courses. They are inexpensive and can provide you with a good foundation from which to begin meditating.

Make sure you meditate, there are quite simply too many positives to just ignore it.

  3. I don’t know why I can’t sit still for more than 10 minutes. It’s really a challenge. My girlfriend can sit there like a silent princess for more than 60 minutes without any issue. Is meditation a girl thing? If not, how do I be more engage in this activity. Sometimes, I enjoy it very much. Sometimes, I find it a complete waste time. Any tip?

    • Do not do meditation with your girlfriend it will distract you and you will not be able to do it for long.

    • Well, you can listen to calming music in earphones. As a younger sibling, I can relate to frustration by not being able to do something someone else is, but I got through it. Anyway, meditation always calms MY mind. If it frustrates yours, then try something else. It’s meant to be relaxing

  7. I have been meditating (so I thought since 2012) and it is only till recently that I said…. “OMG, Is this all because of meditation?” Yes, it is. I wish every school in the world encouraged a cumpolsary class on Meditation. I wish, every deprived society and area had NGO’s visiting them and giving a cumpolsary training. We will leave a better world for our Children.

    The list is so well framed and thought of.

    Thank you.

  8. 1. Meditation is purely for human species as this are the species that struggling in life.
    2. You may be a successful person in life but what is the definition of successful? Being able lead a balance life with 5 key elements intact: Family, Health, Work, Friends and Spiritual.If at the age of 90 you have all the 5 elements with you 100% perfect condition as how it’s started than you can call yourself a successful person. Meditation is the key to achieve and sustain the 5 key elements. What is the point of being millionaire if you bedridden, broken family, avoid by others due to your arrogance behaviour Meditation will help you to achieve your goals in this worldly life and yet it’s prepare you for the next journey. Change your thoughts and life will change, to change your thought mind should be purify and the only way is meditation. Make sure you find the right guru whom can guide you. If you are lucky you will find in a short period.

  10. dear sir
    i am telling you about the method which is better than meditation and very effective and easy and gives you very good result.The method is as follow
    Say “Narayana”and drink water
    again say”Narayana “and drink water
    you have to say Narayana before in each and every drink of water.
    drink 2 litre water daily saying Narayana.
    It takes 4-6 years to become enlightenment if you drink 2 litre water daily saying Narayana

    Note “Narayana is the name of Lord.

  15. i read all 100 benefits in the list.
    If meditation is such a powerful tool..than why all intelligent & educated people most of them ignore doing it..?
    what is the reason for those who once done meditation and not doing it now..?
    why our education system does not include in their curriculum or keep a subject in schools..?
    It appears that meditation is for those who born mentally weak.. & not for healthy persons.
    If i am wrong please correct me.

  28. I never thought that I could meditate even for a short while. This morning, out of a whim, I downloaded a 1 hour mediation music and started to meditate. I shocked myself! When the music got over, I felt like only 30 mins or so had passed by and the music was much shorter than I thought. So I continued for another 15 mins or so. When I opened my eyes and checked the music, it was really for 1 hour. So, I meditated for 1:15 mins and did not know how time passed by. Excited! This is my first day and I can already see the changes. For a start, it appears like the Sun has upped his wattage; every thing is so bright even 3 hours after I finished meditating. I can almost feel energy surges all the time. Below, Arun has asked about stopping smoking. For the first time I did not reach for a Cigg after breakfast and at 11AM, have not still smoked. Amazing, no cravings! I can’t wait for tomorrow morn to repeat this! Agree with the author “Why did I wait so long to start this?”
    Hope all of you take on to meditating

  42. I can’t begin to say how much better I’m feeling! Today was my first time meditating and I only tried it for 10 minutes and it’s very healing. I’m dealing with going thru somewhat of a bad breakup, amongst other daily life events and life started to become very convoluting for me. Then I stumbled across this website as a cry out for help and I must say that this is the answer! Meditation along with prayer is the panacea for me. I know once I meditate longer than 10 minutes, things will be that much better.

    Thank you for this site and the blogs. Positive energy is everything and helps gain peace of mind.

  52. I just started meditating for about a week now, I am new at this. Awhile back Meditation wasn’t even on my mind, but just recently I looked up meditation because I needed some peace in my life. So I did some research to see the advantages of meditation and what it actually does, so I tried it and I must say that I have had an awesome experience doing it. It helped me take my mind off the troubles of the world, and gave me so much peace, and I find myself now reacting differently to situations that use to bother me and I use to forget things very easy and now I find myself remembering thing more easier now, and i also feel more energetic. I meditate 6:30am and 8 pm. Seems like I am even coming to terms with learning how to overcome my past. Thanking God for the new experience and the healing process

  55. Excellent list of 100 benefits of meditation!!! Bravo!

    I have been meditating since 1987. For many years after that, almost nobody in America was writing about meditation. Now in the last number of years, many people are writing about it. But so much of what is written now falls so short of what meditation can really do.

    They might write: “Meditation is good for anxiety” or “Meditation reduces stress.” And that’s all they’ll talk about.

    Your list of 100 benefits is great. Great job listing so many of the benefits. One of the best lists of meditation benefits I’ve ever seen.

    And as I’m sure you know, meditation has more benefits than those 100 on your great list. Many benefits are hard to measure (i.e. the positive effects on a cellular level) and some of them, I’m sure, are beyond our current ability to even understand.

    Regular meditation, preferably daily (or twice a day), over the long run… that’s when all these benefits really start to be realized. All 100… and even more.

    Great job! Thanks.

Friends i m truely speaking to you that meditation is really a very effective thing and all the benifits that has written upper is right i have experienced them and at the moment you start meditating is the actual hilling of one self .

  74. I am feeling useless, I try using hobbies to cheer myself up and hanging with friends but I feel like im on this earth for no reason, and I am now being homeschooled in 11th grade and my mom calls herself a failure for trying to even raise me, im picked on for being over weight and picked on for doing hobbies like guitar and stuff, im not even that good yet, yet people tell me ill never be good and I should give up. Sometimes I sit on the floor against my wall listening to music like Alive or Just Breathing to cheer me up and give me some faith, for long periods of time. I do not want to use suicide as a option, because my mom is thinking about it too, and if I go she would probably try too. Im thinking about maybe running away and trying to live a new life, im tired of sitting in my room doing nothing but wasting my whole life away, like im living for nothing, even though I try and get put straight back down. I feel all is lost in this world and anything I do is put to shame. Sometimes I question myself if life is even real, and if there is a god, even though I have lost believing in him many years ago. I see people saying do not kill yourself, you have alot to live for, but really I do not, I feel im going to live life being useless, and just decay away without being loved or wanted. I am feeling totally useless to the human race and wish I could hide away to my death.

    Hopefully meditating will soothe my mental confusion and put me on the right track I am going to try it as soon as possible, thanks for the list, it is just what I need.

  75. Thank you so much for your 100 list. I know, from limited experience, that it is true. My poor mind, conditioned from early childhood experience, to expect the worst in any given situation, fights me all the way in my practice, against surrendering its control over me, and so its survival as separate from me is at stake. It just doesn’t want me to sit in meditation. It’s part of me and I need to love it and treat it gently yet firmly. This is where I’m at, so far.

    Reply
  76. One possible “side effect” is joint pain from sitting in certain meditation positions for extended periods of time, particularly for people with arthritis or other joint problems. This is easily fixed by learning new postures designed for people with such problems, such as walking meditation or sitting in a chair.

    This is a great list of benefits though. I used to have anger control problems, and after taking up meditation and martial arts, I am now very calm, both physically and mentally. I have become more productive and more creative. I can’t imagine going back to a life without those two activities.

  103. Meditation is a way to tune our bodies, much like you would tune an instrument, the body and mind being our instruments. So the greatest benefit of meditation is the benefit of enabling us to fine tune and control the systems that run our lives.

Don’t complicate a simple process practiced by man for thousands of years-forget all the trappings that the gurus recommend.Be simple in your approach to meditation:practice concentration,close your eyes and think of some high personage or the Master Christ himself.Start this daily for 15 minutes each time.I have also found that prayer puts you in meditation mode within a short space of time of seconds and minutes………………..

  106. i hear about meditation everywhere. “it’s soo good for your body and mind”…blabla. i even believe them, but it is so damn hard to start it (i’m very lazy xD). on one side i think it’s very childish (don’t ask me why but i somehow have that feeling) and on the other side i really know nothing about it (what actually is meditation? do you have to sit or do u have to close the eyes? and so on). so: is there anywhere a beginners guide or something?

  109. My mind is so stable after meditation, i have the power to do any thing, my thinking is totally changed, before meditation i have good qualities and bad qualities also, but after doing that i slowly leave the bad qualities and improve the goodness of a human being. After that i help people a lot, doing things happily a lot, spread love and care everywhere. Finally I said “MEDITATION IS THE BEST MEDICINE”, with no side effects, if you never do start today for a better, peaceful, happy life…………

  110. Hi friends, 2 years ago I was seriously affected by psychology defectiveness. I had great losses in business and relationship, I tried to commit suicide but I was brought to the hospital and saved. I then was under psychiatric observation, while a person was talking and looking at my condition which I was very weak physically and emotionally advised me to start meditation, I started meditating by then. I meditate as much as I can daily. Tremendous change in my emotional level and physical energy, within a year I quit medication. Now I’m healthy both emotionally and physically and having wonderful relationship with my family and friends. All the benefits listed above can be clearly seen in me now and I’m still continuing meditation. My advise every person should apply meditation in their daily life to have perfect balance and happiness in all matter.

  112. I have tried to meditate on and off for years and attended many retreats. I have recently started it again and this time i am loving it and getting all the benefits. I think i have stuck at it this time is because i have had no expectations (when sitting down on my cusion) but i have still had determination to put the effort into my practice. You do not have to be a spiritual guru to do this. Anyone can do it. I started it about two months ago as i was studying and working long hours at the same time. This increased my stress levels at work so i thought meditation would help reduce the stress levels. Meditation has reduced my stress levels and i have got many other benefits too. I am less reactive and i am more confident. I guess the negative self image is not so strong now. Anyway i have finished my course and i will still carry on, its too good to stop.

  114. Meditation allows us to get back to who we really are, beneath all of the mind chatter and it enables us to find and sit with that infinite well or source of peace, love, compassion, patience and joy. As is mentioned above the benefits of “doing” this are manifold.

    Reply
  115. Excellent list of benefits. I think there are even more.

    I use several energy-psychology techniques which can help clear resistance and bring me back to a state of balance and flow. These techniques always work better when you are able to learn how to allow you thoughts to flow and how to let go of them with acceptance and non judgement such as is required whilst meditating. Meditation is the ideal kind of training which enables these releases and freedom.

  116. The simple fact that so many people say that they don’t have the time or the patience to meditate underscores just how much they (we) need to find the time and space in our lives for meditation. I know that the time and energy I invest meditating returns multiplied.

  117. I’ve been meditating for about a year now and I’m a different person. I experience emotion differently than I used to. But in addition to meditating what really helped was this book called Where’s My Zen? It has principles to help you see the world differently. When I meditate I tell myself to keep following them. I found the book on amazon but if you google it you can download a pdf for free on the author’s site.

  119. Thanks for the thorough list of benefits, which is more than enough to encourage everyone to meditate. To master meditation, means to concentrate, prioritize, focus and control.

    The time for meditation is also important. I think a good time to relax through meditation is immediately after workout, which can help to recover faster and help all the benefits from exercising to sink in the body.

  121. Meditation is you’re answer to the life you want. During your day, in between meditations, pay close attention to your feelings and thoughts – this will lead you to a happier life…seriously. And by the way, for those who questions that meditations “decreases aging process”… it does. It doesn’t “stop” our aging process, it SLOWERS it.

  124. Great post, it really does put into perspective just how many benefits meditation brings.

    The word “Meditation” and “Medicine” come from the same root. “Medicine” refers to that which heals the body and “Meditation” refers to that which heals the spirit and the inner world.

    I think that if you can heal your spirit or mind then the body has a way of following. Therefore I think meditation is the most beneficial of all practices.

  125. That is really fascinating that you could find so many benefits with meditation, but meditation sure is the greatest way to heal the body and the mind and to live a healthy life. I sure love to meditate and feel so much more at peace when meditating on a daily basis.

  129. Meditation truly is the key to healing. I began it all wrong–I watched youtube videos- read books, bought CD’s, attended a workshop and became utterly frustrated. My energy was always in a seeking mode. I finally realized that meditation is not about DOING it is about stillness and connection to the beautiful spirit that resides within. I agree your list of advantages are SO beneficial- and I have to add that everyone can meditate for FREE. 15 mins daily in silence pushing all thought aside and just floating on nothingness. I use this as tool to bring creativity to work as an illustrator and a writer. Thank you for this blog- fantastic!

That was all after a very traumatic event so I am hoping that it works out better this time around. Thank you for sharing all of the wonderful benefits of meditation!

  135. As “John” mentions, there is one very serious side-effect of meditation that fortunately is extremely rare. It is called the “Kundalini Syndrome”, and is the premature release of a bodily energy that can be spontanously activated through meditation.

    I experienced a minor awakening of this energy, and it was extremely disruptive and absolutely terrifying. As stated above, it is very rare, and affects less than 1% of all people who meditate. Yet I would advise you to read this article so you can recognize the side effects in case you activate it prematurely:

  139. I practice Vipassana Meditation daily for 1 hour to 2 hours as time is permissble since last 3 months. I had taken thr 10 day course for my first kick start otherwise it is not possible to start without do it all alone and without motivation. I have been doing it daily basis sometimes I miss a day but its okay. In these 3 months I quit my alcohol addiction completly. Before doing this course I tried to quit the habit but it was all in vain. But now I am a changed man.
    I found myself highly relaxed after each session and it lasts for hours. I found myself my relationship with others have changed. I feel myself more energized and stress free. Now it is very easy for me remove unnecessary thoughts and focus on some point for some time for sure.
    I highly recommend to who is reading this just get yourself a good coach and start doing it a daily practice. Just keep in mind that as we do cleaning of our physical body by bathing everyday we should clean our mind everyday by practising meditation.
    It is the gateway to the heaven.

  144. Excellent guidance on Meditation and its benefits.Especially in this fast world where stress is the order of the day,meditation is the only way to have peace of mind.

    Here are glorious thoughts on Meditation by Swami Swaroopananda:

    ” High up above the mountains clouds gather and begin to shower rain upon the mountains. The pure rain that comes from the heavens above forms a pool or a lake which is crystal clear. If you look into it you will see your own reflection. But, unfortunately, the waters at the top of the mountain do not stay in their crystal pool but start trickling down the sides of the mountain in small streams. As these streams of water flow down they begin to meet one another and the stream grows bigger and bigger, gathering to itself soil and tiny pebbles. Rushing down the mountain, meeting other streams, picking up dirt, pebbles and rocks, becoming noisier and noisier it continues, till finally it reaches the plains as a mighty river, flowing at great speed, gushing to waste itself into the salty ocean waters and losing, at last, even its sweetness.
    In the same way, the mind in its essential nature is absolutely pure. But just as the water trickles down the mountain, the mind, drawn by the attractions and temptations of sense objects, trickles down from its pure, blissful nature towards transient pleasures. As it moves that little streak of thought becomes a mighty river, large with the quantity of thoughts, muddy in its quality. It will lose itself in the vast ocean of sense objects or subtle sense pleasures. We have to tame this river of the mind and bring it back to its essential source, its essential nature and experience the divinity reflected in it.
    The uphill climb may not be as easy as the downhill flow. First of all, it will have to give up all its heavy materials — the rocks, pebbles and mud. With this excess material eliminated, its quantity is changed and it cannot help but change its quality. When it reaches the top, with all its impurities removed it is crystal clear again and the infinite blue of the Heavens is reflected in its bosom.
    In the same manner, we must make a firm decision to lead the mind back to its source, its home, its pure state of calm and peaceful beauty. This must be a conviction. It must be a decision. Once we have given the mind a direction we should slowly and steadily remove all the impurities and excesses of the mind. All spiritual practices are performed to attain this condition of the mind. Meditation is one such practice that purifies the mind.
    When beginning on the path of meditation, it is not necessary to stop thinking altogether. The attempt of the seeker should not be to stop the thoughts, but rather, to divinise the thoughts, to change the quality and, to some extent, reduce the quantity of thoughts. At this moment our minds are full of agitations, worries, anxieties and emotions that create turmoil. All these tendencies or emotions that disturb the mind at the seat of meditation must be temporarily put aside”.

  145. I started meditating 10/6/1073 when I was 25 years old and I had some very beneficial results for 14 years. I made the mistake of quiting for about 11 – 12 years and I was floundering again and my life was empty. I started meditating again in 1999 or 2000 and I am even appreciating the meditation more than the first time around. I meditate morning and night from 10 – 20 minutes and it helps me live in the present. I meditate with Roy Masters meditation that is more of a Christian Judao meditation and I think it should be taught in schools at an early age. I love the fact that you have listed all the benefits and I am experienceing all those 100 benefits. All my bad habits have been easy to stop and I feel free. I don’t react to pressure anymore and I see clearly enough to handle every situation with calmness and patience. Thank you for listing all the benefits of meditation.

  157. As a longtime dynamic meditation practitioner (Silva Method) I am noticing lately that my ‘bad temper’ has undergone a big change. What I mean is, I am much less reactive and much more patient and understanding. Because I live in NY I can hardly walk out the front door without ‘getting into it’, if I choose to do so. Now I find myself pausing to say in my mind, usually at the point in a personal encounter where it is about to turn nasty, “is this worth fighting over?”, or “howzabout this person has stresses and challenges and, maybe we don’t need to slug it out on the bank line?” You see where I’m going? I don’t get that knot in my gut that comes from just having gone ten rounds with someone at the super market. And whoa… I don’t even need to be RIGHT about stuff anymore. Although I have also experienced deeper sleep, enhanced learning, and many other health benefits, this fresh perspective on human relations and how I might handle them in new ways..well, it’s golden!

    • You can try simply focusing on your breath, preferably on the outflow. Just listen to the sound, or if there is no sound, the act of attempting to listen will work.

      If it helps, you can count (softly, in your head) from one to ten, then back to one, one count on each outward breath.

      Let that breath entirely fill your consciousness. Remember, nothing really is meant to happen during meditation. Just relax, and focus on your breath. Just ‘turning up’ to practice is better then worrying about doing it right.

The 100 benefits are really true. please try it and u will see the difference yourself. i always keep asking the question why people meditate and used to laugh at those who practice it. i have started meditating and i have experienced the differences in only one day.
    Since my chilhood i have always been deprived of love and affection. With time i had become someone who always hate others. i didnt have respect for elders and even my parents. nobody loved me bcoz of my poor character. i was always a lonely person even in school nobody loved me.I have been suffering form anxiety, lack of confidence,ego etc and panic attacks bcoz of this loneliness.I was loosing my memory and couldnt concentrate on my studies. My performance at school had gradually started to detoriates. Yes i had started becoming insane and kept talking to myself. This is not a story to force you to do meditation its my true life
    Today thanks to meditation i have been relieved of all these problems. I am more confident about myself and have a good personality. if u r a lonely person dont worry and start meditation. u will start loving yourself and others will love u too for sure. i have experienced it. u will have a cool attitude and a softness will be automatically created in your conversation.
    yes meditation is about self healing.
    If u really want to have a good personality start meditation. Trust me it will help you. ITS A GIFT FROM GOD.
    The KEY factor to take into consideration when practicing meditation is CONCENTRATION.
    If u dont concentrate when meditating it will be useless to do it. You wont be benefited.

  193. I wonder wht else one needs apart from the benefits listed above. Daily practice of Meditation for about 20 min ( preferably number of minutes your age is) will make life joyful. Your perception changes and you will definetly become more energetic!!

    You can find much more simpler Meditation techniques which can be done anytime and at any place…for example…Anapanasati Meditation (discovered by Buddha) teaches that simple observation of breath with gradual cutting of thoughts helps one achieve the above listed benefits easily. U need no guru. Your Breath is Your GURU.

  197. I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I’ll go through another door – or I’ll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present….
