How to grow your brain

Okay. I've told you this before but it won't hurt to remind you. Here's part of a little article on the subject I just found:
Meditation helps increase gray matter. A research team from University of California, Los Angeles scanned the brains of people who meditate and found that certain regions in the brains of long-term meditators were larger than in a similar control group.

Meditators showed significantly larger volumes of the hippocampus and areas within the orbito-frontal cortex, the thalamus and the inferior temporal gyrus - all known for regulating emotions.
There are many benefits to consistent meditative practice and a bigger brain is certainly one of them!

  1. Yeah, meditation not only enhances the brain but it also helps in attaining peace and happiness in the mind.
