Hello, meditation. Goodbye, pain!
Benefits of meditation
Regular meditation does not only improve your mental health but also boosts your mood. Some studies1 suggest that it helps reduce anxiety, addiction, chronic pain, and blood pressure—all while improving memory, awareness and harmony in interpersonal relationships. Eight weeks of practice is more than enough to reduces stress and anxiety, or help you concentrate. Regularly meditating can even help to partially block1 the sensation of pain, which is very common during a toothache.
