The popularity of meditation is undeniable right now.
And rightfully so.
It’s becoming more and more mainstream as people discover its benefits.
You may have heard that meditation can:
- Reduce stress
- Control anxiety
- Promote emotional health
- Enhance self-awareness
- Improve memory
- Fight addiction
- And a ho’ lot mo’
But are you aware that meditation can actually change your brain?
A research team from Massachusetts General Hospital observed exactly that.
They studied brain scans of people before and after a course on mindfulness meditation. And what they found was quite remarkable…
The brains they studied actually grew in areas associated with compassion and self-awareness — and shrank in areas associated with stress!
And it doesn’t take much time to enjoy the benefits meditation has to offer.
It’s suggested that 5–10 minutes per day is optimal to begin witnessing an increased sense of well-being. But something as little as two minutes per day is perfect to get started. You can increase your time as you get more comfortable with the practice.
Meditate two minutes per day for the next two weeks.
You can find thousands of resources online. Look for guides on “How to Meditate” and follow the instructions.
If you’re up for the challenge, meditate a bit longer and see how you feel.
If you keep up with the practice — and get through all the chaotic monkey-mind business you’ll likely experience at first — I’m confident it’ll have a remarkably profound impact on your life.
I know it has with mine.
Now sit down, shut up, and become one with the Universe.
And when you’re ready 👇👇
