Meditation Helps Productivity

It may seem oxymoronic that learning to sit still and do nothing can help make a person more productive. Research finds that meditation has many benefits, including productivity.

Meditation helps:

  • Increase the blood circulation of the brain.
  • Improve focus and memory.
  • Allows for better planning.
  • Reduces stress.
  • Enhances creativity.

Doing a half hour of meditation a day has an excellent recharging capacity.

How it helps productivity

Meditation has significant calming effects, and because it increases blood flow to the brain, it helps “rewire the circuitry.” Research shows that people who meditate need less sleep.

Additionally, because increased blood flow slows the aging of the brain, it increases the amount of grey matter which is responsible for muscle control, seeing, hearing, memory, emotions, and speech.

Meditation helps defragment thoughts. Being able to focus better prevents procrastination and allows for more complete immersion in projects. Students who meditate were found to do better on tests.
