Meditation is a key element of the Overcoming MS program which can have significant benefits for your mental health and daily life by relieving stress levels, improving sleep, concentration and focus. Meditation can even improve fatigue and reduce the risk of depression. When we are stressed, our body triggers the release of certain hormones that cause inflammation. This can even trigger MS relapses and make MS symptoms worse.
We provide free guided meditations to help get you started on your meditation journey, including simple instructions to help you reach a calmer mindset. In addition to its positive impact on mental health, another benefit of meditation is that it can be adapted depending on the time you have available and what you want to get out of it. So, although we recommend at least 30 minutes of meditation a day, this is flexible depending on your personal requirements and situation.
