Meditation in Southend at The Body Matters
Meditation involves the use of techniques, such as focusing your mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state. At the Body Matters, we have been practicing meditation for over 10 years. We teach meditation to both newcomers and those with meditation practice, with a focus on developing calmness and positive emotions.
Meditation is about training the mind and finding the right techniques that work for each person as an individual. For example, you can’t tell a busy mum to sit and meditate for an hour, it’s got to be something that’s right for you and your lifestyle. You don’t have to be religious to meditate and you don’t have to be a Buddhist.

How Meditation Can Help
If you look online you can read plenty of articles about the health benefits of meditation, for example, lowering blood pressure and reducing stress levels. Here are just a few reasons that may find you feel the need to calm your mind, and how meditation can help improve your life too.
Lacking in Willpower – Practicing mindfulness meditation can help to boost willpower by regulating the area of the brain that controls our emotions and decision making.
Trouble Concentrating – Meditation may help to improve mental focus by altering brain function. Meditators are often better at handling quiet brain activity, often related to mind-wandering.
School Holiday Meltdown – Are temperamental teenagers driving you potty during the school holidays? Simple meditation techniques, such as deep breathing and relaxation, have been shown to significantly improve unpleasant moods.
Chronic Pain – Do you find yourself regularly popping painkillers in a desperate attempt to ease your pain? Meditation techniques may help you to regulate your sensitivity to pain.
Sleeping Troubles – Do you find that insomnia strikes you often? Bombarding you with thoughts which result in anxiety, stress and depression? Meditation clears out the clutter in your mind, which lets you slip easily into sleep.
