When your mind is uneasy, a sense of urgency is communicated to the body, causing your nervous system to respond with anxiety and adrenaline. Science has demonstrated that even the smallest forms of sickness are far more difficult to overcome when the mind is in constant distress.
The ancient technique of meditation teaches us how to apply focus to our surroundings by bringing us closer to the sensations of our body. This is exactly when your mind can relax and be at peace. *From MindBody Vortex | December 12, 2016
