Fact #1. First of all, meditation activates those areas of the brain that are responsible for decreasing anxiety and depression, and increasing pain tolerance. They are activated when the mind is not focusing on anything and is at rest.

Fact #2. Meditation ‘trains’ certain areas of the brain, improving memory, goal-setting and self-awareness.

Fact#3. Meditation changes our brainwaves and these frequencies can be measured. Those who meditate regularly have been proven to have more ‘alpha’ waves that help spread positivity and reduce the feelings of anger or sadness.Pin It
