Mindfulness

Meditation is a practice of training the mind to be more aware, focused and calm. It can take many forms, such as breathing exercises, body scans, mantra repetition, visualization and more. The goal of meditation is not to stop thinking or feeling, but to observe them without judgment or attachment.
Meditation has many benefits for our well-being. It can help us reduce stress, anxiety and depression, improve our mood, memory and concentration, enhance our creativity and problem-solving skills, strengthen our immune system and lower our blood pressure and heart rate.
How does meditation do all that? Well, meditation affects our brain in positive ways. It can increase the activity of the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for executive functions like planning, decision-making and self-control. It can also decrease the activity of the amygdala, which is involved in emotional reactions like fear, anger and sadness. By doing so, meditation can help us regulate our emotions better and respond more rationally to challenging situations.
Meditation can also change the structure of our brain over time. It can increase the thickness of the cortex, which is related to higher cognitive abilities like learning and reasoning. It can also increase the connectivity between different brain regions, which can facilitate communication and integration of information.
So how can you start meditating? It’s very simple. All you need is a comfortable place to sit or lie down, a few minutes of your time and an open mind. You can use an app or a guided audio to help you follow a meditation session, or you can simply focus on your breath or a word that resonates with you.
The key is to be consistent and patient with yourself. Meditation is not a quick fix or a magic pill. It’s a skill that takes practice and perseverance. But if you stick with it, you will see positive changes in your life.
