Meditation trains your mind to focus on the moment instead of worrying about what occurred in the past or what could happen in the future. All you need is five minutes a day. A Study published in April 2013 in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience reported that the practice can reduce anxiety levels by up to 22%. Research has suggested that meditating can actually form new and permanent neutral connections in the brain. Anyone can do it, and the more consistent you are, the easier it will become. So take a timer, a notepad and a pen to a quite room with soft (but not dim) lighting. Sit up straight in a comfortable chair, remove your shoes and socks and get started.
