Meditation Changes Your Brain for the Better, Even if You’re Not a Monk

You don’t have to become a monk to learn from one. Research into how meditation affects the brain is conclusive: Meditating immediately changes the frequency of your brain waves and, after five years, increases the size of white matter bundles in the prefrontal cortex.

Best advice is to start small. This explains that 20 minutes of daily meditation was too large a commitment. So instead of reordering your life, she recommends practicing basic mindfulness exercises like concentrating on your breathing patterns. This technique will help you build your meditation muscle, and start you down a more peaceful and purposeful path.

So if you leave feeling tempted to meditate — go on, give in.
