If you’ve ever tried deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or even just spent a quiet moment doing something you love, you know how much better you feel and how your mood improves.
But, what if you could actually practice a quieting exercise daily for as little as 8 weeks, and actually rewire your brain permanently for increased calm, joy and mental clarity?
The Practice of Mindfulness Meditation Can Change Your Brain
A 2013 randomized controlled trial published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that mindfulness meditation had a beneficial effect on anxiety symptoms and improved stress reactivity and coping mechanisms when faced with a stress challenge.
Try to use mindfulness meditation as one of your natural remedies for anxiety. You can find guided meditations on You Tube or apps on your smart phone, or you can download my mindfulness meditation CD here.
It will help to reduce your cortisol levels, improve your sleep quality, reduce brain fog and belly fat, boost your productivity at home and at work, and calm your anxiety.
Banish Depression (+ Boredom, the Blahs, and Fatigue)
One of the ways in which mindfulness can help treat depression is through improving your ability to regulate your emotions. Many studies have shown that mindfulness provides the tools needed to step back from intense negative emotions, identify them, and accept them instead of fighting them. This allows you to better regulate your emotions, leading to better coping and reduction of depression.
