Dru Meditation

Meditation gives you space to pause and rest. It will build your energy levels, boost your immune system, and relieve insomnia. The good news is that just one session will make changes in your brain and your body, and of course the more you practice, the greater the effect.

 Research shows that meditation improves our health. Neuroscientist, Dr Sarah Lazar conducted an experiment on people who had never meditated. This involved scanning the brains of the participants before and after and eight-week meditation program. Results showed that their brains had significantly changed for the better. 

So what happens in the brain when we meditate? 

The amygdala is the part of the brain responsible for the stress response. When we’re stressed, our amygdala grows, and the more stressed we are, the bigger the amygdala. However, with regular meditation practice the amygdala shrinks in size which means we are less reactive to stress.

We can’t control the outside stresses however we can learn, through meditation, to control our reaction to that stress.
