Meditation is an active form of brain training to help increase awareness.
Increasing number of research have shown that meditation can help manage “monkey brain”, improve focus and concentration, help relief some levels of anxiety and depression, thereby improving overall psychological well-being – to an extent.
Consistent mindful meditation changes the way your brain responds to stressful situations in life and can help deal with emotional responses. It also enhances your ability to empathise with others without being overwhelmed by emotions.
Meditation appears to be effective as it provides us with a sense of perspective.
Try incorporating a short meditation into your practice and see how that affects your mind and body over time.
