Last week we discussed the benefits of meditation. To destress and optimize your brain, here’s an intro to mindfulness meditation.
Find somewhere quiet at home or work. Sit cross-legged with your bottom elevated on a cushion roughly six inches. This pose maximizes blood flow, chi flow and balance. Slow your breathing and recite in…out…in…out…
Set a timer for 15 minutes and close your eyes. Allow your mind to run free, processing stressors, awkward memories and random thoughts. When it becomes too much, return to breathing: in…out… Practice this technique daily to build a better brain!
