Absolutely. Research proves it. Studies show that those who meditate almost 30 minutes a day on average, for eight weeks, have measurable changes in brain regions associated with their memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress response.
In a study that appeared in PsychiatryResearch: Neuroimaging, a team led by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers report the results of their study, one of the first to document meditation-produced changes over time in the brain’s grey matter.
Less stress, more empathy, and a greater sense of self would change anyone’s life. And that’s only the beginning of the transformations that can occur.
