Med­i­tate

Milwaukee Health - - PERSPECTIVE -

There’s plenty of sci­en­tific ev­i­dence that med­i­ta­tion changes the mind, brain and body, po­ten­tially af­fect­ing every­thing from anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion to in­flam­ma­tion and heart dis­ease, in­clud­ing ground-break­ing re­search by world-renowned UW-Madi­son neu­ro­sci­en­tist and Cen­ter for Healthy Minds founder Richard David­son (who counts the Dalai Lama among his besties). There’s no “wrong way” to do it, and even five min­utes a day can have a mea­sur­able im­pact. Join guided med­i­ta­tion groups at Dragon­fly Med­i­ta­tion Stu­dio, Rooted in Mind­ful­ness Com­mu­nity In­sight Med­i­ta­tion Cen­ter or the Mil­wau­kee Mind­ful­ness Prac­tice Cen­ter. Get kids in­volved with the Grow­ing Minds and Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal of Wis­con­sin’s Take 5ive on­line mind­ful­ness prac­tices. Down­load an app like Headspace or In­sight Timer, or fol­low the handy flow­chart on page 49.
