There’s a common misconception that meditation is a rather boring state of empty mind without thoughts. But meditation is in fact a method for achieving a heightened state of awareness and it does become quite enjoyable with continued practice. Experienced meditators exhibit high-frequency gamma waves while meditating, as neurons fire quickly throughout the brain.[2]

Practiced over 5,000 years ago in India, meditation has long been considered a spiritual practice associated with the far East. Now, Western neuroscience and psychology are finally catching up to provide scientific validity to what eastern philosophies have known for many centuries.
