How to change your brain
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.
