Astonishing Finding on Meditation


When we hear about meditation, we think of monks or men with man buns humming om on a mountaintop. So why do psychologists think cross-legged quiet time will become the next public health revolution like jogging or brushing teeth?

Harvard researchers found that during meditation, the brain reallocates gray matter from our amygdalae to our hippocampi – taming our stress and anxiety and boosting our capacity for memory and emotional control. That’s right – during meditation, our brain rebuilds and optimizes itself.

The subjects meditated an average 27 minutes per day for eight weeks. More on beginner meditation techniques next week!
