    Benefits of Meditation During Pregnancy

    Meditation is simply the exercise of training your mind to redirect your thoughts and focus. Practicing mindfulness has many more benefits in the form of positive mood alleviation, healthy sleep, pain tolerance, and self-discipline. According to a study published by National Center for Biotechnology Information, mindfulness does not only have a positive effect on stress reduction in specific populations, such as those with maternal health and pain, but can be beneficial for healthy individuals, emphasizing mindfulness as a promising intervention to improve stress levels. Furthermore, mindfulness-based stress reduction was found to reduce ruminative thinking and trait anxiety, as well as increase empathy and self-compassion, suggesting that mindfulness-based interventions are also able to reduce stress levels in healthy people.
