How to change your brain

Prevention (Australia) - - Mind Now -

It turns out de­voted med­i­ta­tors have dif­fer­ent brains from the rest of us. They tend to be larger in vol­ume, have stronger con­nec­tions be­tween re­gions as­so­ci­ated with at­ten­tion, and pos­si­bly age more slowly. In one study, the brains of 50-year-old long-term med­i­ta­tors ap­peared to be seven and a half years younger than those of their non-med­i­tat­ing peers. Not into med­i­tat­ing? Mind­ful mo­ments are a good place to start.
