Stay young through meditation

As you know, I'm always encouraging you to find more and more motivations for persevering in your meditation practice. Here're are the first two paragraphs from a little article entitled "Zen meditation can help prevent age-related cognitive decline":
Washington, June 8 (ANI): Meditation might keep you young, especially Zen meditation, for a new study has found that regular practice of it, it can reduce stress in long run, as well as the cognitive decline associated with normal aging.

Zen meditation, a Buddhist practice, is centered on attentional and postural self-regulation and scientists believe that its regular practice may affect the normal age-related decline of cerebral gray matter volume and attentional performance observed in healthy individuals.
Mindfulness meditation (the kind we do here at the Center) is also centered on attentional and postural self-regulation so it certainly qualifies.
