Mediation Picture

If you can breathe you can meditate.  A 2011 Yale study found the following benefits of meditation:

- Experienced meditators seem to switch off areas of the brain associated with wandering thoughts and anxiety.

- Meditation can rewire the brain reducing areas where anxiety originates and enlarging areas which generate happiness and compassion.

- Meditation boosts the immune system, lowers blood pressure, and produces health benefits relating to stress reduction.
