This Is Your Brain on Meditation
When you sit down to meditate, what exactly happens in your brain? That’s what psychologist Robert Wright set out to discover when writing his book on Buddhism and meditation. Here, he describes how our perceptions change when we reach inner calmness, and how we can look deeper into rational decision-making, anxiety, and feelings. Remember, you don't need to be a Buddhist—or believe in any particular religion at all—to reap the benefits!
