Are You a Regular Meditator…Yet?

What are you waiting for? Meditation has gone viral. Studies show that meditation has a number of health benefits. A very recent study suggests that regular meditation can help to prevent brain loss. Mindfulness meditation, in particular, seems to be resonating with a variety of age groups and professionals including hospital employees, students, soldiers, the Seattle Seahawks, members of Congress, and even Oprah, according to a recent Los Angeles Times column.

Meditation can help to relieve stress, ease physical maladies like headaches, and increase compassion and productivity. Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass., now offers a master’s degree in mindfulness studies. If you are feeling over-stimulated, meditation can help to calm you, allowing you to feel centered and in control.
