The health benefits of meditation
Science shows meditation offers many health benefits, including making you healthier and happier. Here’s how meditation helped one couple cope.
The course on “mindfulness-based stress reduction” was offered by my family physician, Dr. Miroslava Lhotsky, and psychologist Judy Turner, both of whom practise in Toronto. Lhotsky had mentioned it in passing at my last checkup, telling me about new research on the ancient practice. Several of her meditating patients were lowering their blood pressure, she said pointedly, knowing that my numbers had been creeping up. On my way out, I picked up the brochure on the eight-week program.
