Is a regular meditation routine or frequent orgasmic experiences preferable for overall health enhancement? Which provides more relief and stress release? Here are some facts.

Bruce O’Hara and colleagues at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, decided to explore the claims that meditation does more than just feel good and calm you down, it makes you perform better – and alters the structure of your brain. Using a well-established psychomotor vigilance task, the researchers concluded that meditation improved test performance.

Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston report that meditating actually increases the thickness of the brain cortex in areas involved in attention and sensory processing. The growth of the cortex is not due to the growth of neurons, but results from wider blood vessels, more supporting structures such as glia and astrocytes, and increased branching and connections.

Major scientific journals such as Science, the American Journal of Physiology, Scientific America, Lancet, the Journal of Counseling Psychology, the International Journal of Neuroscience, the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association, the British Journal of Educational Psychology, and the Journal of Conflict Resolution all published research on the positive benefits of transcendental meditation.

Intelligence growth, increased creativity, broader comprehension, improved perception, greater orderliness, improved academic skills, lower blood pressure, reduced anxiety, improved health, reversal of aging, change in breathing, deep rest, increased productivity, decreased drug abuse, improved relations, self-actualization, increased energy, greater appreciation of others, increased self-esteem, decreased crime, reduced conflict, and improved quality of life are all positively impacted by a regular meditation practice of approximately twenty minutes a day.

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day.

What would you do?

Draw out every cent, of course!!!!

Each of us has such a bank. Its name is TIME.

Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no going back. There is no drawing against the “tomorrow”. You must live in the present on today’s deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and success! The clock is running. Make the most of today. Take responsibility for your own happiness and enjoy life now!

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time. And remember that time waits for no one.
