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, “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.

test bio


  1. i like so much meditation …but i create small dificulities like study how can aviod this problem

  2. Its very useful to health

  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?

    • initially its difficult but with little practice and determination you can attain your goal start with 5 to ten minutes then increase duration.

    • 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

  4. I think meditation has unlimited benefits, we may say that meditation is the “food” for our mind and soul.

  5. Thank you for compiling such an extensive list of benefits of meditation
    Nowadays researchers are demonstrating the great benefits of practices such as mindfulness and meditation. Thank you for being a messenger of the benefits of practicing meditation

  6. There is no reason for not doing meditation. So many benefits. Thankyou for this article

  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.

  9. Meditation completely transformed my life, and I was able to reach this state through practicing yoga. gave me the opportunity to take holistic courses online so that I could attain qualifications and pursue the healthy lifestyle I had always wanted to lead

  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.

  11. hello guys,
    thank you for this wonderful note,100 benefits are more behind the benefits series of meditation.people do not do bcz they think other people would laugh and it happens. thats y do mindful meditation. i am doing meditation from last one month.i feel myself more calm,peaceful,light,happy,enlighten,positive,focused.thanks.

  12. Meditate every day.

  13. Very Helpful to aware to people about meditation……!

  14. if you want to get power over nature you can get it through meditation .through the meditation you can control your mind if you have controlled your mind through meditation then you can use your 100% power(mind it we use only 5% power in day to day life)so you have got 100% power you can do anything and everything that’s why swami vivekananda told,you can do anything and everything if you have controlled your mind so do meditation it is only way to get succeed it’s life that’s all

  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.

  16. Please advise me good mudra for sound sleep and better health

  17. thanks for useful information.

  18. I agree, the positive thoughts and energy allow us to see things in a different way, difficult situations can be solved gradually and finally everything has one solution less death.

  20. This is such an exhaustive list of benefits of meditation. And yes, meditation has been such a blissful experience for me !

  21. Hi there! Great article you have, I would also want to share my thoughts that Meditation indeed has positive effects not only in the body but also in the mind, a total holistic wellness that brings us to know our inner-self better. It gives us a peace of mind that helps us have a much better perception about our lives.
    Our advocacy is to promote the positive effects of meditation, yoga and inner wellness.

    Thank you and have a great day!

  22. Mind&heart relaxation video for cd

  23. Wonderful!!! Let me start doing it to eradicate depression! will it be completely desappeared?

  24. Meditation is not an goal or achievement. Meditation has no seeking or desire. In meditation we become aware of our desires and goals. Meditation is all about being conscious and aware of our actions, thoughts and feelings.

  25. I used to meditate everyday it helps me to work faster as fast as I can I really appreciate the meditation.l request you to keep practicing meditation.

  26. Hi there!

  27. It is very useful to humans because every person have anrgy this is good health tip to lowers the follow this and be happy

  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

  29. Excellent information that will motivate people to reap the benefits of meditation. Meditation helps a great deal in understanding ourselves and can bring about a remarkable change in our total outlook.

  30. Well put together. I’m just getting started and hope to do it for 30 minutes at a time for the rest of my life.

  31. many many thanks
    i want to know more about this with yoga procedures me

  33. Meditation is the good for health so you have to do daily then realise the effects.


  35. The life changeable topics

  36. are all these benefits scientifically proven?

  37. i am a can i recover from this habbit

  38. Meditation is definitely a yes and this post does it justice. How about some short meditations. as short as 5 seconds.

  39. Good one! this article is really interesting

  40. Good blog post. I definitely love this site. Continue
    the good work!

  41. Meditation offers amazing benefits for long term peace and satisfaction. Meditation is something I do often, not necessarily a requirement to mediate for hours, just 5 minutes here and there can translate into amazing Personal Benefits of peace and well being.

  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.

  43. thanks for his benefitial words

  44. Very informative article.

    Thank you

  45. Meditation offers innumerable benefits for your body, mind and spirit. The effectiveness of meditation comes from deep relaxation. When we are deeply relaxed, the body and mind are refreshed and revitalized. This brings many benefits that are both immediate and long lasting.

  46. It is really good information. I have participated few meditation programs at OshoNow. It was really nice experience 🙂

    If you wish to participate OshoNow programs, please do visit our website for more information.

  49. it is awesome

  50. This was a really very good info. Thanks.

  51. Yoga is the best exercise for your health and very nice benefits you shared with us.

  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

  53. Meditation is very Powerful. and the Psychological & spiritual benefits of meditation is wonderful.

  54. Thank you for promoting meditation. Heres to 20 Days Mediation Honoring New Year:

  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.

  56. Nice article but to complete 100 benefits of meditation you had to repeat some of them. Meditation is incredible but 100 different benefits is probably too much to ask

  57. avinaya i dont know much about this power but i know one thing that in indian history you can see that there are so many great people born on the india’s earth who changed the so many things . And one can generate telekinetic power from meditation . You know Swami Vivekanand was the person who changes so many things by using this meditation power .

  58. 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 . This is the only solution which can change our society . Think if a person quit drinking and smoking then how he will be then his own life will be full of joys and happiness.

  59. Helpful information discussed.. I am quite delighted to see this particular post..thanks for presenting all of us wonderful material. Excellent walk-through. .

  60. These are some hell lot of benefits of mediation. Thanks for providing information on this.

  61. can we develop “telekinetic power” from meditation……….?

  62. Thanks for providing so many advantages of meditation. People can do it for their relaxation, comfort & positive energy.

  63. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free.

    Thank you very much and looking forward for more informative articles in the future. Bookmarked!

  64. after reading your article i have decided to start meditating from today…….thx a lot..

  65. Hi I’ve started meditating a while ago and I’ve found the benefits so amazing. Its for me the biggest and quickest way to relieve stress and to also let go of any negative emotions. Thank you.

  66. Meditation helps in every aspect of life, it even builds willpower because sacrificing 20 minutes or more a day just to meditate isn’t easy.

  67. This listing of meditation benefits simply make life feel so much easier to handle. I know people tend to want to medicate for various reasons but if they just took the time to invest in themselves, they could realize the great benefits listed here.

  68. hi, friends am krishna most of benifits mentioned there are true am suffering from tension headache,and migrane from 4 year i taken lot of english medicines no use then approacd to ayurveda they advice do med daily mor 1hr and provide some tablets now am 70% healed from headache also changed in total personality really its awasme plz plz i suggest u try it
    Good luck

  69. Thank you so much, for the beneficial information about the meditation. The guidance given by you is really an advantage for us. Now a days a lot of people are getting inspired by meditation as it provides mental stability. Meditation gives a refreshment from our hectic schedule. Meditation destroys negative thinking and I know many people who are doing meditation.
    I just want to know that, is there any side effect like joint pain and muscle pain because of meditation or not.

  70. its’ awesome………
    i like it very much……………………………………….

  71. I’m just sixteen years old and i first learned how to meditate from my wrestling coach it is very beneficial and it is good for many different reasons i use it mostly to fall asleep or to get away from stress!!!

  72. Great article! I love meditating… I even reposted this on my website (linked to here of course 🙂 ). It’s linked in my confidence program too! Thanks so much for the write up!

    Peace and Love,


  73. When I meditate I automatically laugh out a lot after a few minutes even if I don’t want to. Has it happened to someone else as well or only me?

    This isn’t the case if I medidate without music, which I got from someone, this perticular one! and I ain’t trying to sell out this music!

  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.

  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.

  77. Kills Negative thinking.Develop sixth sense & can achieve our goal easily.
    For me some swamiji came to my mind while doing meditation.

    I wish you all to start meditation & help to global to develop positive environment.

    Thank you

  78. Today thanks to meditation i have been relieved of all these problems. I am more confident about myself and have a good personality.

  79. this list contains benefits which only begginers get…but when one gets in deep meditation for longer hours then u can achieve supernatural powers also…

  80. Excellent Article!

    Nice to see not just the physical benefits, but in fact, an exploration of the mental and spiritual implications as well.

  83. Sounds good … but could you cite evidence that each of these benefits is, in fact, true?

  84. Today thanks to meditation i have been relieved of all these problems. I am more confident about myself and have a good personality.

  85. I think meditation is has unlimited benefits, we may say that meditation is the food for our mind and soul. I do meditation very often, I treasure my mind that’s why I give time for rest and make my brain calm. Meditation is good also in treating depression.

  100. everyone who posted a negative comment your the ones who are idiots this is what yall are missing you have to beleive it will work if you dont beleive in what your doin you’ll never accomplish anything remember for everyone who beleives this you still have your imagination

  101. i am suferinng from depression and anxiety since last 6 years i have started meditation 6 month back but now i am able to meditate up to some extent i was also taking medicine what ever my experience i am sharing with you because i liked the article :meditation is wonderful gift of god to human being: for ex” EDUCATION IS A TOOL WHICH BRINGS PEACE,PROSPERITY TO HIMSELF TO SOCIETY AS WELL AS NATION”


  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.

  104. Dear steve ., just go through the video u fill find all the douts clarifies .,

  105. 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?

  107. dear one ,
    meditation is such a beautiful instrument for has 100 benefits!…i surperised thank you very much for all this

  108. What a great list of benefits. To the guy who was talking about meditation being dangerous, that is because some people don’t do it in moderation… most humans aren’t even capable of meditating that long.

  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.

  111. guys i psychologically feel that meditation is nothing but a reflection of our mind power which eventually leads to god even if god doesnt exist

  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.

  113. I have been meditating since last 2 months and I found good changes in me; like I feel lot with energy.

    But second thing my hair loss is increasing day by day. What might be the problem?

  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.

  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.

  118. I did meditation daily after seeing these benefits and there is incredible change …… I am suffering from asthamatic bronchitis … And now i am feeling good ………. I think every person if meditate about god daily then there is no violence in world

  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.

  120. I’ve been reading all the comments and i am very fascinated i am willing to give meditation a try, please i would like comments on how i could start if there is a required amount of time or if there are eBooks i could download that would help me reply would be most appreciated thanx.

  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.

    What i feel is

    Prayer is when we talk to God !
    Meditation is when God talk to us !

    Can anybody name a person below the sun, who would not be interested in listening to GOD ?

    At last, message for the new comers

    No knowledge is knowledge unless experienced .

    Love to all

  123. can anyone tell me what is exactly kundalina syndrome ? do you feel it while meditating ?

  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.
    Great post!
