Meditation and Creativity
“Research on creativity suggests that we come up with our greatest insights and biggest breakthroughs when we are in a more meditative and relaxed state of mind. That is when we have “eureka” moments. This is likely because meditation encourages divergent thinking (i.e. coming up with the greatest number of possible solutions to a problem), a key component of creativity.” Emma Seppala, Ph.D., Science Director of Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education and author of The Happiness Track.
A study of Aetna employees who participated in the company’s mindfulness program enjoyed a 28% reduction in stress, 20% better sleep, and 19% less pain, as well as an increase in worker productivity worth an estimated $3,000 per employee per year.
Research shows that meditation can physically change the brain and body and can help to improve many health problems and promote healthy behaviors.

Findings seem to suggest that meditation is beneficial for brain preservation, effectively protecting against age-related atrophy with a consistently slower rate of brain aging throughout life.
In a 2012 study, researchers compared brain images from 50 adults who meditate and 50 adults who don’t meditate. Results suggested that people who practiced meditation for many years have more folds in the outer layer of the brain. This process (called gyrification) may increase the brain’s ability to process information.
Meditation can Lower High Blood Pressure
About 75 million American adults have high blood pressure—that’s 1 in every 3 adults – and roughly 7 million people die each year from various illnesses associated with high blood pressure including heart failure and stroke.
The American Heart Association recommends meditation for lowering high blood pressure.
Numerous scientific studies have found meditation to be effective for treating hypertension.
Meditation decreased blood pressure in association with decreased psychological distress, and increased coping in young adults at risk for hypertension.
Breathing awareness meditation produced a greater decrease in 24-hour systolic blood pressure compared with the other treatments and a decrease in diastolic blood pressure compared with life skills training.
Meditation Improves Sleep, Fights Insomnia and Other Conditions
Deep meditation helps to achieve a balance between mind, body and spirit. By achieving greater overall harmony, meditation produces regulatory changes at various behavioral levels resulting in quality sleep.
The benefits of meditation on sleep was first documented in 1997. In the study researchers showed that long term meditators spent more time in slow wave sleep (SWS) with higher theta–alpha activity and increased rapid eye movement (REM) density. This is particularly welcome news for the elderly population for as we age our ability to achieve slow wave sleep naturally declines.
Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain and regulates sleep and wakefulness. Recently, melatonin has gained acceptance in the management of sleep rhythm disorders due to jetlag and insomnia. Did you know that meditation practices enhance melatonin levels and hence quality of sleep?
Mindfulness meditation appears to be a viable treatment option for adults with chronic insomnia and could provide an alternative to traditional treatments for insomnia.
Meditation-based programs may be helpful in reducing common menopausal symptoms, including the frequency and intensity of hot flashes, sleep and mood disturbances, stress, and muscle and joint pain.
A 2014 research review suggested that mind and body practices, including meditation, reduce chemical identifiers of inflammation and show promise in helping to regulate the immune system.
