I’ve been so excited about neuroscience lately!
I’m learning about things like neuroplasticity which is our ability to change our habits no matter how old we are.
I’m learning that we all have negative bias which means we’re hard-wired to dwell on our negative experiences instead of the positive ones (it’s a problem-solving mechanism for us humans).
And then there’s something called entrainment which may explain why it’s easier to meditate with a group than by yourself. Who knew?
One thing that I’m consistently hearing is that meditation will help you understand your mind and behaviors and help you make positive changes. It’ll also help you calm your nervous system, reduce stress, lengthen attention span, fight addictions, and maybe generate kindness and ward-off Alzheimers!
If you’d like to try a guided meditation, here’s a recording of me leading a breath-focused meditation.
If you’d like to try a simple practice that helps develop concentration, try this.
In any case, I hope you take a peek inside your mind to see how it ticks!
