Meditation is one of the best things you can do for your Brain!

By

In a recent newsletter, sent out by Dr. Mark Hyman, he wrote, “Meditation has been proven to extend your life…create more happiness…increase inner peace…lower stress levels…increase mental clarity…resolve long-standing emotional problems, including fear, anxiety, depression, anger, and substance abuse…and…

…it’s one of the best things you can do for your brain!

With nothing but bad news everywhere you turn (the economy, politics, health scares), people are smothering under a blanket of stress, and meditation is one of the best ways to raise your threshold for stress.

When you’re stressed, your body increases its production of cortisol (often called, the stress hormone). And in certain times, this is an important survival mechanism.

For example, when you confront a “fight or flight” situation, your body gives you a big shot of cortisol and adrenaline so you have the energy and strength to either fight or run.

But, all the stress of modern day-to-day living causes most of us to produce way too much cortisol for longer and longer periods. This isn’t good. In fact, it can lead to a whole host of health problems.

And one of the best ways to combat it is to meditate.”
