A new study in neuroscience has found that a simple activity can help rebuild brain structure in just a few weeks.
The activity in question is mindfulness meditation, which involves focusing on the present moment and observing thoughts and feelings without judgment.
The study discovered that mindfulness meditation for 30 minutes a day for eight weeks increased gray matter density in the hippocampus, which controls learning and memory.
The participants also reported improvements in their mood and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
The findings suggest that mindfulness meditation could be a useful tool for improving mental health and cognitive function.
The study adds to a growing body of research on the benefits of mindfulness meditation, which has been shown to have a range of positive effects on the brain and body.
