Despite what the skeptics may think or say, meditation involves a lot of science. Researchers have demonstrated time and time again that meditation triggers a series of responses in the brain that enable us to achieve a state of relaxation and self-awareness that can reduce stress, improve focus and increase contentment.
During the first dew moments of meditation, your brain’s ventromedial prefrontal cortex is in high gear, jumping from idea to idea, task to task, person to person. The challenge at this stage is to get this part of the brain to “chill”.
When you are able to focus your attention through a mantra, breathing or a chakra, the lateral prefrontal cortex kick into action. At this point, your thoughts become more balanced and logical.
After a few weeks of daily meditation, your dorsomedial prefrontal cortex engages quickly and you are able to easily make the transition from thinking about today’s to-do list to a deep, focused meditation.
More and more “traditional” medical professionals now recognize the health benefits of meditation and are recommending their patients consider it as a way to combat the negative effects of anxiety, depression and stress.
