Meditation Is Great For Your Health

While ancient Tibetan Buddhists didn’t have access to modern medication, they did use a powerful tool that helped reduce stress and improve their immune system’s response to stress — a form of meditation called Lojong.

Lojong is a type of meditation that focuses on increasing compassion toward others.

"It tries to train people to rethink and reimagine their relationships with other people," said Dr. Charles Raison, who conducted the study on Lojong. "It's a series of visualizations and mental challenges where you use meditation to challenge why you feel the way you do about people."

"In its purest form, it's a way of practicing, of learning to become very thankful for your enemies because they help teach patience and caring," he said.

The study showed that the practice of Lojong decreased stress as well as the side-effects that go along with stress.

Alright, everyone, take a quick break from reading and go find your chi!
