Duration of meditation: the effect on the brain.


The benefits of meditation have been confirmed by dozens of studies and thousands of people who use it to improve their mental state. Scientists believe that even a short meditation can improve concentration, memory, and improve the emotional state. Scientists are trying to study the effects of meditation on people with cognitive impairments.

Regular meditation affects your brain, and as a result, you get an improvement in your life in all aspects. Scientists became interested in the effect of meditation on the human brain and conducted another study in which students participated. Participants in the experiment for 8 weeks practiced meditation 5 times a week for 10-15 minutes. At the end of the experiment, the researchers did an MRI of all participants’ brains and found changes in the brain patterns that appeared in all participants. This suggests that meditation leads to a faster switch between two brain states such as wandering the mind and concentration. In addition, the volunteers’ attention improved, and the state of high concentration was longer.

Thus, scientists suggest that meditation can help people who have difficulty concentrating. These are usually people with autism or Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, scientists hope that meditation can help reduce symptoms and slow the development of these diseases.

However, you only need to find 10-15 minutes a day to improve your life.
