Benefits of Meditation
Survey Results: How Beneficial Has Meditation Been to Your Life
The confirmation of the terrific benefits of meditation keep pouring in. A few weeks ago, in the article Brain Health Benefits of Meditation, I discussed recent empirical research that showed the positive affects of meditation on brain health and stress reduction, and I have also written about my views of how beneficial meditation is in the article Top 10 Profound Benefits of Meditation. But more real life evidence now comes in the form of our recent survey results which simply asked, "How Much Has Meditation Helped You In Your Life?"
Before the results, one small request. I am currently running an interesting survey on "How Many Enlightenment Experiences Have You Had?". If you have not done so already, please take a moment and give your input there – Thanks.
So here are the emphatic results regarding how important and beneficial meditators feel meditation is in their lives. The choices were are follows…
- Not Helped at All
- Helped a Little
- Helped a Lot
- Transformed My Life
|Meditation Has…||Count||Percent %|
|Transformed My Life||12||50.00%|
|Helped a Lot||11||45.83%|
|Helped a Little||1||4.17%|
Analysis of Survey Results
Not a single person responded that meditation has not helped at all, and only 1 person said that meditation helped only a little, 45% found meditation to be very beneficial and 50% said that meditation had "Transformed Their Lives!". I cannot think of too many things that can have such an impact to our lives and I find the results very motivating and inspiring.
