Boost your BRAIN power!: Exercise for your Brain.
Mindfulness meditation. Research has shown that mindfulness meditation can change your brain and help you in managing anxiety and other negative feelings. Think of it as a way of giving your brain an effective workout. I know that for many of us it can be hard to quiet our brain. Often when I encourage clients to try meditation they tell me that they have a hard time staying focused and that when they try meditating their brain races with random thoughts. This is actually the whole point of mindfulness meditation – notice that you have gotten distracted and return your attention to your breathing. This is the workout – notice that you have become distracted and return to your breathing. This act repeated over and over is what creates change in your brain. I love this video by Happify -Meditaiton 101 that explains this point.
