Over the years, science has been on the side of meditation. Faultfinders will tell you that it is just another New Age name for napping and spiritual hogwash, but that is not true at all. In actuality, science has proven you are better off when you meditate than your peers who choose not to. In recent times, a wealth of scientific research has been carried out to provide undisputed evidence that meditation indeed has healing properties. Take a look at the following health benefits of meditating below:

1. It slows down the aging process

Telomeres are tiny strings of DNA that shield the end of chromosomes. Naturally, these small strings tend to shorten over time as they perform their duty, and as they compress, aging takes place. In 2013, Harvard carried out research that measured the telomeres of 37 people. The result showed that the people who engaged themselves with meditation had longer telomeres than those who did not meditate. 

2. It relieves chronic pain

The journal of pain reported a study examining the use of meditation on 89 patients with constant neck pain. Some of these patients were put on a home-based exercise program while the others were set apart to a 90-minute weekly guided meditation practice. The guided meditation practice proved useful in decreasing the pain in contrast to those who used the home-based exercise program.

3. It treats Addiction

In another study, 248 people practiced qigong meditation on a short-term alcohol and drug addiction treatment program. After the study period, the participants confessed to having less anxiety, self-control, and reduced craving.

4. It reduces stress

Several studies have shown that people who practiced loving-kindness meditation more often feel less stressed and can better deal with stressful situations. Also, people who practice loving-kindness meditation feel very confident about themselves and have a lesser probability of getting depressed.

5. It improves fertility

Meditation reduces stress, and science proves that reducing stress can improve the chances of a woman getting pregnant. An Oxford Journal study reports that the stress level of women decreases on the month of conception. Furthermore, in the International Journal of fertility, scientific research proves that couples who practice meditation while trying to conceive are less stressed and more fertile than couples who do not. Regarding these studies, being calm and relaxed plays a significant role in fertility.

6. It keeps the heart in good shape

Meditation helps prevent cardiovascular disease and strengthen heart muscles. A variety of scientific studies shows that people who meditate have lesser chances of developing heart failure, stroke, and blood pressure.

Meditation is an inexpensive way to manage stress and stay healthy. Go on YouTube to find videos tutorials on various meditation techniques or visit your local gym to inquire about taking a class.

An ambitious homebuyer goes above and beyond the call of duty to find a great residence at an affordable price. As such, this individual is better equipped than others to streamline the homebuying journey.

Anyone can become an ambitious homebuyer. Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you seamlessly discover your dream residence.

1. Create Homebuying Criteria

Buying a home can be simple, particularly for those who establish property buying criteria. If you enter the real estate market with homebuying criteria in hand, you can hone your search to residences that match your expectations. Then, if you find a house you want to buy, you can move quickly to acquire this residence.

As you craft homebuying criteria, it often helps to evaluate your short- and long-term aspirations. For example, if you strive to live close to the beach, you may want to pursue residences near top beaches in various cities and towns. On the other hand, if you require a house that includes a central air conditioning system, you can search for residences that boast this feature.

2. Develop a Budget

A homebuying budget is essential, as it will help you search for houses that fall within your price range. Perhaps most important, a budget limits the risk that you will be tempted to spend beyond your means to purchase your ideal house.

Generally, it helps to meet with banks and credit unions before you launch a home search. These financial institutions can teach you about a variety of mortgage options and help you make an informed mortgage selection. Best of all, banks and credit unions can respond to any of your mortgage concerns or questions, at any time.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

If you want to speed up your home search, you may want to hire a real estate agent. Because if you have a real estate agent at your side, you can get the help you need to discover a terrific home that can serve you well for years to come.

A real estate agent understands the importance of conducting a comprehensive home search. Thus, he or she will do whatever it takes to help you find a home that suits you perfectly. From setting up home showings to helping you craft a competitive offer to purchase, a real estate agent is prepared to assist you in any way possible.

Furthermore, a real estate agent will offer plenty of guidance as you get ready to close on a home. The weeks and days leading up to a home closing can be worrisome, but a real estate agent will provide tips to alleviate stress. As a result, a real estate agent will help you enjoy a stress-free homebuying experience.

Want to navigate the homebuying journey like an expert? Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and you can become an ambitious homebuyer and find and purchase your dream house in no time at all.
