Open the pages of any major news publication these days and you will no doubt find an article about some study suggesting that yoga and meditation have positive effects on your over all well-being.
Whether it be reduced stress, increased brain activity, or even reducing the effects of aging, there is no reason for you to delay this practice.
Here is yet another article from the Harvard Medical School giving you some more proof.
Here are a few quotes from the article:
….. regular practice of meditation appears to produce structural changes in areas of the brain associated with attention and sensory processing… …particular areas of the cerebral cortex, the outer layer of the brain, were thicker in participants who were experienced practitioners of a type of meditation …
…meditation can produce experience-based structural alterations in the brain…
… meditation may slow down the aging-related atrophy of certain areas of the brain…..
…meditation can produce alterations in brain activity, and meditation practitioners have described changes in mental function that last long after actual meditation ceases, implying long-term effects…
Add this to the list of other studies done all over the world at universities and research institutes that show the benefits of meditation or what I like to call “Focused Attention”. The only question left is how do I start.
