How does meditation help mental health?

Stress is associated with anxiety, tension, and worry, usually as a result of negative streams of thought. Meditation is a way for clients to positively influence their inner dialogue, breaking those negative thought loops, which results in better mental, emotional, and even physical well-being.

Some of the benefits of meditation therapy include:

  • New perspectives on negative thoughts
  • Improved stress management
  • Self-awareness
  • Mental presence
  • Managing and reducing negative feelings
  • More patience
  • Lower heart rate, blood pressure
  • Better sleep

Does meditation improve recovery?

Meditation can help prevent clients from relapsing by managing triggers such as negative thoughts and feelings that are associated with their alcohol or drug use, as well as prolonged withdrawal symptoms, becoming a useful coping mechanism for lifelong sobriety.
