The Science Behind Mindfulness

Mindfulness meditation has proven to increase and decrease certain areas of the brain for optimal function. It increases neurons and connections in the pre-frontal cortex, responsible for emotion regulation, the right anterior insula, associated with attention and awareness, the left hippocampus responsible for learning & memory, and the temporoparietal junction, related to perspective, empathy and compassion. It also shrinks the amygdala, the “fight or flight” part of the brain associated with anxiety, fear, and stress.

Manage Stress

Research shows that mindfulness meditation decreases the levels of the stress hormone “cortisol”, fortifying a sense of calmness throughout the nervous system and the brain.

Reduce Anxiety

Studies indicate that Mindfulness meditation reduces the grey-matter density in areas of the brain related to anxiety, concluding to be as effective as antidepressants.

Increase Focus

Studies have shown that Mindfulness meditation practitioners have significantly better ability to focus attention and suppress distracting information.

Enhance Creativity

Cognitive Psychology studies have demonstrated that Mindfulness meditation develops divergent thinking, a primary driver of creativity and innovation.

Improve Relationships

Studies suggest that Mindfulness meditation practitioners have greater empathy and compassion, and feel more satisfied with their personal relationships.

I downloaded it and took it to bed. I didn’t make it to the end of the session the very first night AND did not wake up through the night, not even once.
