MORE IDEAS FROM New Study Shows Brief Meditation Can Reduce Anger

The Physical Benefits Of Meditation

Studies suggest that, regardless of the practitioner’s experience, meditation can help reduce the body's response to anger, reducing the toll frequent anger takes on you.

Anger and frustration cause us to be stressed, activate our sympathetic nervous system, and produce shallower, faster breathing, a rapid heart rate, and raises blood pressure.

  • Take a smooth, slow breath in and count each inhale and exhale, from one to ten and then back down to one.

Breathing in meditation practices

The many benefits of meditation might be well documented, but the breathing exercises associated with mediation might be what's actually doing all the good work to your body and your mind. 

How you breathe has a direct effect on your heart rate, which in turn can influence every major system in your body in a sort-of sad chain reaction.
