Stress and negative mental states can have surprisingly direct effects on cellular aging. This means that improving mood and reducing stress arousal with meditation can effectively slow the aging process for the body and mind - with some studies finding significant slowing of brain aging among meditation practitioners.

- The Problem
Modern society is so heavily weighted towards youth, it’s little wonder that we’re caught in a cycle of fear and self-loathing when it comes to our own ageing process.
As our bodies change, it’s natural to miss the things we used to be able to do more easily.
We are seduced by cosmetic products and procedures which promise an external fix.
But if we really want to make a difference to how our body ages on the outside, we’d be far better off focusing on what’s happening within.

“Meditation lowers blood pressure and other markers of ageing including MVO2 or oxygen demand. It enhances psychological well-being and is the most significant determinate of telomere length (the end cap of our DNA), which is a very important marker of ageing and longevity: longer telomeres = less illness + longer life.”
Dr Dharma Singh Khalsa, founding president and medical director of the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation
