The Most Powerful Therapy in the World…And It’s Free

The most powerful therapy in the world. And it's free.

If I could give my clients only one tool to change their lives for the better, it would be meditation. How can meditation make you happier? Lots of ways! For starters, research has shown that wandering minds are unhappy minds. And meditation helps you keep your mind focused.

Meditation also counteracts the body's stress response which will make you feel better physically. But the real magic is how it helps you shut off the left brain chatter so you can access the intuitive and seemingly magical gifts of the right brain.

It seems that every time I scan the latest research in positive psychology  I read about another study that shows how powerful meditation can be. Besides reducing stress and anxiety and improving depression, physical health and the immune system, it can also help you embrace what I call whole brain living. People who meditate create new neural networks involving different regions of the brain. What this really means is that meditation changes your brain. For the better.
