Meditate For A Bigger Brain

Now scientists have discovered another added bonus: it increases the size of your brain too!

Researchers have learned that certain areas in the brains of people who’ve been meditating long-term were larger than those who hadn’t, particularly the regions which are known to regulate our emotions.

‘We know that people who consistently meditate have a singular ability to cultivate positive emotions, retain emotional stability and engage in mindful behaviour’ says Eileen Luders, lead author of the report and a postdoctoral research fellow at the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging.

So, if you’re prone to stress, worry or negativity, try introducing meditation into your daily life and see what positive effects it can bring.
