Med­i­ta­tion can lit­er­ally change your brain, ac­ti­vat­ing ar­eas of your nog­gin that con­trol aware­ness and emo­tional reg­u­la­tion and de­ac­ti­vat­ing hubs linked to anx­i­ety. One study by Har­vard-as­so­ci­ated re­searchers at Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal showed changes in the brain af­ter just eight weeks of med­i­ta­tion. “These brain changes act like a wedge be­tween you and overeat­ing,” Peeke says.

Med­i­ta­tion means bet­ter sleep (and less overeat­ing).
