Research continues to link meditation to our physical health and access our link to a beginning meditation.

A large new observational study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that meditating was associated with a 35% lower risk of high cholesterol, a 14% lower risk of high blood pressure, a 30% lower risk of diabetes, a 24% lower risk of stroke, and a 49% lower risk of coronary artery disease.

The new research follows a scientific statement made by the American Heart Association (AHA) in 2017 on the effects that low-cost, accessible interventions like meditation can have on heart health. (2)
