Is it possible to sort of “rewire” your brain so you can better control imposing symptoms of depression and angst? The short answer, according to recent new research, is yes, and it all it takes in large part is some “mindfulness meditation.” According to a study report produced by a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers, an eight-week program called mindfulness meditation was able to make measurable changes in parts of the brain associated with memory, sense of self, empathy and stress. The study is the first to document meditation-created changes to the brain.
New findings suggest that meditation can steer people away from the mental traps that drag out problem solving.

With every cell division, the telomeres become shorter until the cell can no longer divide, causing it to die. Meditation was found to lengthen the telomeres, thereby […]
