CONSCIOUS HEALTH MEDITATION?
HOW IT WILL HELP YOU AS A DOCTOR:
Be prepared to completely re-think what you thought you knew about meditation. Conscious Health Meditation isn’t your typical mindfulness exercise.
It’s not just about relaxation- it’s SO MUCH MORE.
Conscious Health Meditation re-wires the way your body handles stress.
Neutralize the effects of cortisol and adrenaline from your near-constant survival mode.
Increase production of serotonin, dopamine, DHEA-S, and endogenous opioids.
Become less reactive in high-stakes clinical situations.
Be more easily adaptable to changes and setbacks.
Maximize ‘Adaptation Energy’.
Improve your clinical intuition and instincts.
Reconnect with your compassion and empathy, your patients, and yourself.
Stay in the moment during a hectic day of patient care.
Increase energy and creativity to come up with impactful solutions to improve the healthcare system.
Get more done in less time.
Improve digestion and immune function, leading to less sick days and more energy.
Improved sleep. Will help you catch up on years (decades!) of chronic sleep deprivation (Conscious Health Meditation is up to 5 times more restful than sleep).
Conscious Health Meditation can be learned by anyone, even (especially) someone who believes they are too stressed, anxious, or skeptical to meditate.
Does not require clearing the mind of thoughts or cessation of thinking.
Triggers a physiologic effect in the brain and body, which allows the mind to settle down to a unique state of restful alertness.
Is up to 5 times more restful than sleep (based on our metabolic consumption of oxygen), and this profound rest allows the body to naturally dissolve its stresses.
Is NOT a religion! People from any culture can experience its benefits, and practicing the technique requires no change in one's beliefs.
It is practiced twice a day, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
