Meditation is a simple process of quieting your mind. There are all kinds of meditations, but the most common act of meditation generally consists of simply sitting quietly, focusing on one’s breath, a word or phrase. Why would you need to quiet your mind?
Neuroscientists have found that people that meditate regularly shift their brain activity to different areas of the cortex. Brain waves in the stress-prone right frontal cortex move to the calmer left frontal cortex. This mental shift decreases the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. There is also less activity in the amygdala, where the brain processes fear.
- Deep rest (lower metabolic and heart rate).
You can meditate anywhere; it can be a short mediation or a long one, a deep or a relaxing one. Meditation can be structured or unstructured, guided or unguided. Breath counting would be structured, while in unstructured meditation the experience itself leads the meditation. A good rule of thumb is to select a method that feels natural and compatible to you. It is a beneficial practice to meditate 20 minutes a day.
