There are a number of reasons you should meditate (it increases calmness of mind and well-being), but a recent study found that people who mediate age less quickly than those who don’t.
Scientists say that the calming and anti-stress aspects of meditation are what help keep people who meditate young.
"You pay attention to your own breath," explains Sara Lazar, a neuroscientist who studies the effects of meditation at Massachusetts general hospital in Boston. "If your mind wanders, you don't get discouraged, you notice the thought and think, 'OK'."
Meditating ISN’T hard — it just takes some self-discipline to get started! What you wating for?!!
