“Meditation is painful in the beginning but bestows immortal bliss in the end.”
~Swami SivanandaWhy Meditate?
A 2005 study on American men and women who meditated a mere 40 minutes a day showed that they had thicker cortical walls than non-meditators. What this meant is that their brains were aging at a slower rate. Cortical thickness is also associated with decision making, attention and memory.
