Meditation and Neuroplasticity

Meditation has been extensively practiced, researched, and studied for many years. As a result, researchers have discovered that meditation can help benefit our body and brain in many ways. Meditation helps alter the brain’s circuits by changing the brain waves in the cortex which can help us better organize, recall and store information. This increase in brain function is referred to as neuroplasticity.

Researchers and scientists believe that regular meditation can have long-lasting benefits in other areas as well. Another benefit is an increased production of serotonin. In other words, meditation can boost your behavior, beliefs, happiness, health, and mood.

There are many different forms, styles, and variations of meditation. Regardless of the form you adopt and practice the key guiding principles are very similar.  The first step is to set an intention to develop a regular meditation practice. Many meditation experts feel asking some guiding questions before meditation is very helpful. The basic meditation principles include a combination of breathing, calmness, consciousness, focus on breathing, letting go, relaxation, and restful awareness. Some refer to this as slipping into the gap between our thoughts where the mind is aware of your breath as the body and brain become relaxed. The best way to experience the benefits is to devote yourself to regular practice. While any time devoted to meditation is beneficial, many people feel and find that developing a consistent practice around the same time of the day helps it become a healthy habit.
