Feel good all day!

Woman's World - - Contents -

Feel­ing fa­tigued af­ter ac­tiv­i­ties that used to be a breeze? Blame a de­cline in your body’s abil­ity to pro­duce the en­er­giz­ing brain chem­i­cal GABA, which typ­i­cally de­clines af­ter age 40. But spend­ing just five min­utes sit­ting com­fort­ably and fo­cus­ing on the present—like the sound of your breath and the sen­sa­tion of your lungs fill­ing with air—ramps up the pro­duc­tion of this brain chem­i­cal by 27%, re­port re­searchers at Bos­ton Univer­sity School of Medicine, giv­ing you a feel­ing of calm en­ergy to power through the day.
