Meditation is an alternative way to decrease anxiety, lower blood pressure, boost immunity, and reduce stress, among other great health benefits. Meditation can offer you a moment of calm and clarity, which will help you to be happier, healthier, and even more successful.

Research suggests that mindfulness and concentration meditation are both utilized as alternative ways to boost mental and physical health. Research published in the International Journal of Psychology and Psychological Therapy (2010) from Thapar University and the Indian Institute of Technology, discusses the “effects of meditation on human physiology such as heartbeat, blood pressure, cortical activity, metabolism, respiration, and skin resistance.”

The study also examines the role of meditation in “human perception and cognition.” Many famous athletes, comedians and entertainment personalities practice meditation— and you can too! Let’s take a look at four celebs who meditate, and explore how this wonderful alternative practice could benefit you.

Oprah, one of America’s most influential entertainment personalities, meditates every morning according to media outlets. “I give myself a healthy dose of quiet time at least once (and when I’m on point, twice) a day: 20 minutes in the morning, 20 in the evening,” Oprah told The Huffington Post. “Knowing that stillness is the space where all creative expression, peace, light, and love come to be is a powerfully energizing, yet calming experience.”

Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons, the cofounder of Def Jam and an American business magnate finds time to meditate daily. “You can’t serve the world unless you take care of yourself first. I find time for meditation every day,” Simmons told The Huffington Post.

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant

NBA superstar Kobe Bryant also implements mindfulness meditation into his training plan. “I normally do my mindfulness exercises in the morning. It’s the first thing I do when I get up,” Bryant told media outlets. “I find that to be the best way to start the day.” Kobe Bryant’s almost inhuman focus on the basketball court may be attributed to his meditation technique.

Even actor and comedian Jerry Seinfeld utilizes meditation to boost his productivity and focus, and to help him sleep. “To me it’s a work thing, if you meditate, you can get so much work done,” Seinfeld told media outlets. “I always say to people you know how about three nights a year you get a good night sleep? You can have it every day with meditation.” You may find Seinfeld an unlikely celeb to practice meditation; however, meditation is truly for all, offering vital health and wellness benefits.
