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.
