Episode 70 is out! Level Up Your Meditation Practice with Muse's Ariel Garten.
I've been meditating for about 4 years now pretty religiously and it's truly changed my life. I am more self-regulated, I sleep well, I make sound decisions...then there are all the studies out there to show other benefits including:
🌟In a 2012 study, researchers compared brain images from 50 adults who meditate and 50 adults who don’t meditate. Results suggested that people who practiced meditation for many years have more folds in the outer layer of the brain. This process (called gyrification) may increase the brain’s ability to process information.*
🌟A 2013 review of three studies suggests that meditation may slow, stall, or even reverse changes that take place in the brain due to normal aging.*
🌟Results from a 2012 NCCIH-funded study suggest that meditation can affect activity in the amygdala (a part of the brain involved in processing emotions), and that different types of meditation can affect the amygdala differently even when the person is not meditating.*
