The holidays should be filled with joy and peace, but many of us feel stress and overexertion instead. Quieting the mind is important for relieving this stress and keeping a healthy perspective on all the demands you’ll encounter. While it can seem impossible, it’s easier than you might think!
Our brains are constantly changing, whether it’s chemical or structural. Our brains tend to change when we go through an experience. The experience can be as simple as driving to the gas station or as complicated as losing a loved one. The brain changes whether it goes through daily experience or trauma. People tend to say age can play a factor in keeping your brain refreshed but at the end of the day, no matter how old you are, every brain is so unique and wired differently. It’s your job to keep your brain refreshed!
The brain is one of the most important parts of our body (Obviously!), but sometimes we forget to take care of it…Our brain is the center and protection of our pineal gland. Many factors in our everyday life can affect your brain in negative ways. Alcohol, drugs, chemicals, certain foods, trauma, stress and much more can affect your brain. This can lead to mental disorders, day-to-day stress or even just simply having a headache! Meditation is a tool that we can all use.
