Better Brains with Mindfulness

I don't know about you, but I'm always trying to figure out which type of meditation offers the most benefits...


"Why mindfulness?


Not all kinds of meditation have equal effects. These recent studies focus specifically on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) technique pioneered by Jon Kabat Zinn. Holzel breaks down mindfulness into four key components: attention, body awareness, emotional regulation and a change in the perspective of self.


While meditation runs the gamut from mantras to visualizations, mindfulness meditation emphasizes emotional regulation and lends itself to quantifiable results. Holzel defines mindfulness as “deliberately paying attention to experiences in the present moment in a nonjudgmental, accepting way.” Better Brain Function

As always, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! A proud supporter of the 10% (or slower) rule.
