We have apps for everything. Literally everything. If you don’t want to check your phone too often, there’s an app for that. Want better posture? Download an app. Curious if your clothing is ethically sourced? There’s an app for that too. Our technological world assumes that if we have the right tools, we’ll be able to be more productive. However, that’s often not the case.
While apps have the power to make tasks easier, they don’t replace the human mind. All the apps in the world won’t make you complete all of your tasks faster, get your life in order, and optimize your entire day.
“High-quality work is a function of two things: the amount of time you spend on the work and the intensity of your focus during this time,” explained Cal Newport, author of Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World. “If you increase your focus, you’ll get more done in less time.”
But how do you increase focus? When the apps aren’t working, where does one go for help? Well, what people are starting to realize is that focus isn’t about having the right apps; it really comes from within. This is where meditation plays a powerful tool for improving productivity.
Studies have shown that meditation structurally changes parts of the brain associated with cognitive and emotional processing. Through meditation, the brain’s cortical thickness increases, connected to working memory and decision-making skills.
Not only does meditation reduce stress, but it helps organize your thoughts, gain focus and stay on a task for longer periods of time. With people struggling from chronic stress, many cannot stay focused on anything longer than a couple of minutes.
Study after study, meditation is proving to be the practice to help decrease our internal distractions and improve focus. While this sounds fantastic, many people struggle with meditation and reducing their stress levels. Sitting still and focusing on your breathing isn’t easy to do when living with chronic stress.
When experiencing chronic stress, the body’s nervous, immune, digestive, and reproductive systems are suppressed as the body is in a “flight or fight” state. Long-term side effects of chronic stress range from hair loss to insomnia to headaches. This is where red light therapy can complement and support one’s journey with meditation.
The red light therapy is based on emitting specific light onto the body’s skin to affect the body’s cellular level positively. But how does this help reduce stress?
By stimulating the body’s cells, you can decrease cortisol hormone levels (the stress hormone) and raise serotonin levels in the brain. Thus, your internal system returns back to its normal state. With the red light therapy products, they can support your meditation practice and help you recover from the symptoms of chronic stress.
With red light therapy, not only can you address the root problem, but tackle the symptoms as well. There’s red light therapy for hair loss, tense muscles and joint pain, insomnia - the list goes on. Regardless of your symptoms, red light therapy will be able to heal you from the inside out. You have the power to take control of your stress and support yourself during your meditation journey.
