Abstract

Living a happy and healthy life on all planes is possible through the unified practice of yoga, pranayama's, exercise, and meditation (dhyana) especially when performed consciously and with awareness. Such mindful meditation when performed on regular basis it helps to relieve stress from body and mind. Hence we undertook the present study to observe the effects of regular Meditation on the hyper reactors of cold pressure test (CPT) to find out their future outcomes in improving the modernized stressful life. After getting ethical approval to the study subjects willing to participate in the study were selected and after performing cold pressor test (CPT) 383 hyper reactors were considered for the guided meditation sessions for 3 month. The sessions were conducted for 10 min both in morning and evening. After completing the session successfully it was observed that nearly 241 (62.83%) previous hyper reactors were turned into hypo reactors. Hence we conclude thatnon pharmacological method like meditation should be encouraged to enhance significant improvements in cardiovascularparameters like systolic and diastolic BP in population having high risk of cardiovascular disease.
