Meditation is Good for Brain Health
Do you have trouble focusing on work or projects, and diving into tasks that you need to accomplish?
Is it difficult for you to get into a project and be totally focused, then stay there?
Do you frequently struggle with concentration?
Are you easily distracted? Squirrel!
You are not alone!
Over 9.8 million Americans have a form of diagnosed attention deficit issues, including over 6 million children. Many of these folks are medicating for their attention issues. There are many, many more people who have undiagnosed forms of attention issues, such as the inability to focus and concentrate.
I help people learn how to meditate, and build up their attention “muscle.” I call it heavy lifting for the brain. With a consistent meditation practice, people are able to focus their attention better, like a laser pointer. Plus, they can maintain their focus and concentration for longer periods of time vs. before meditating. In this video you are going to learn how to increase your focus with meditation, and I will break down the 5 important benefits and upgrades that meditation contributes to brain health.
Give me “brainhealth” below and I will send you the show notes from today’s video so that you will be able to work on the art of focus through meditation. You will also understand why it is such a wonderful way to exercise your brain, and keep it healthy and sharp.
If we’ve not met, I’m Jen Dial and I help busy people plug into their inner peace, align with their purpose and achieve their health goals with meditation on a daily basis.
We do this using my signature Golden Particles Meditation Technique, via private coaching, group masterminds and our Meditation Library full of recorded meditations that help you navigate the valleys and peaks in life.
Most of us are crazy busy, and possibly stressed out with all the adjustments we’ve had to make to our life styles, activities, work and school. If your family is like mine, we are having to help both of our daughters with their new online learning platform and it has not been easy! Not for anyone! Plus, my husband and I still need to run our businesses, as we are both business owners. I can tell you that the tools and life hacks that I have learned are being put into play now, more than ever. Especially the practice of deep breathing and meditation for health and wellness. Our health is becoming more and more at the top of the priority list.
Do you have systems in place to manage stress? Do you have tools to help you and your family with focus and improved mental health? Meditation is a great place to start, and it can be simple, easy and feels soooo good!
Shortly, I will guide you in an easy-to-follow meditation to strengthen your focus. Before that, I will share some of the benefits that meditation provides for our brain health. But first, I’d like to invite you to attend my upcoming masterclass, 5 Effective Keys to Effective Meditation in Just 10 Minutes/Day. Just 10 minutes! Enter brainhealth below and we’ll get you registered for the free masterclass in just 2 days, this Thursday, October 1st at noon PDT.
Let’s take a look at 5 of the ways that Meditation can actually CHANGE & UPGRADE your brainpower:
Brain Upgrade #1: Consistent meditation enlarges the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for rational decision-making. This means that you will be able to make better decisions, vs. paralysis in analysis that many people suffer from. A confused or overwhelmed mind becomes frozen and does nothing.
Brain Upgrade #2: Shrinks the amygdala, which is the fear-center of the brain. What that does for you is diminishes the fear mechanism in your thought process so you can become more positive, courageous and make a bigger impact. Fear will not limit you!
Brain Upgrade #3: Thickens the hippocampus, which is key for learning and memory. Wouldn’t you like to increase your capacity (and your children’s) to learn more and memorize with more ease?
Brain Upgrade #4: Increases overall grey matter. That means your brain actually increases in size. This is the heavy lifting for the brain effect: the brain actually grows and becomes stronger, just like your muscles when you work out. Meditation is like heavy lifting for the brain.
Brain Upgrade #5: Enhances high-amplitude gamma brainwave activity, which produces heightened awareness and bliss. Your life will get better as you bring in more bliss…Bliss means more joy.
These 5 reasons why meditation helps to upgrade your brain will directly impact your life when you meditate consistently.
