Joining together neuroscience and mindfulness, we can begin to understand how the brain really works and how our daily practices can impact our lives.
Our brains are made up of billions of neurons, that need to communicate with one another and other parts of the body. These systems work together in an interconnected fashion.
The brain has plasticity, which is the ability to learn and grow and change over time. Meditation affects the brain’s functionality, structure, and thought patterns. The more you meditate and practice mindfulness, the more our brains’ synapses strengthen.
Taking one small step in support of a happier, healthier, and calmer way of life, mindfulness and meditation is a great place to start. Results of research indicate that mindfulness can help you in more ways than you think.
