Want a healthier heart or to live longer?

Start a simple Mindfulness or Meditation practice today. This from a recent article from Harvard that you can read here: https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/meditation-offers-significant-heart-benefits

The latest research confirms that people who practice meditation are significantly less likely to have a heart attack or stroke or die within five years.

A high HRV is a sign of a healthier heart. A 2013 study found that low HRV is associated with a 32% to 45% increased risk of heart attack or stroke among people without cardiovascular disease.

With regular meditation, you may be able to raise your HRV. A 2013 study found that people who did five minutes of meditation daily for 10 days had a better HRV compared with those who didn’t meditate.

A number of high-quality studies also show that meditation can modestly lower blood pressure, according to a 2013 American Heart Association scientific statement published in Hypertension.
