Through mindfulness and meditation research, neuroscientists have come to recognise the emotional and health benefits of a clear, balanced and centred mind.
As per the web site DeStress Monday, they define mindfulness as- “the act of paying close attention to your thoughts, feelings and sensations as they’re happening. This is sometimes called being present in the moment. Mindfulness works because it helps buffer us from the habitual patterns of thought that often center on past worries or anxieties about the future. With practice, you’ll gradually gain more control over your thoughts and progress towards a healthier, more positive outlook”.
According to Brain Works-
“By training a quiet and clear mind, the more subtle and complex thoughts come into awareness. We become more resilient, more connected, more ourselves; allowing intuition and inspiration to flow. These basic principles underlie our approach to neurofeedback. The advantage of integrating modern neuroscience with eastern traditions is that any essential mental training can be accomplished in a much shorter time, working directly with the brain’s inherent neuroplasticity. Our Neurofeedback brain training acts as a mental compass, showing the way into states that are difficult to reach without guidance. After some practice, you can get there on your own”.
The thought manifests as the word; The word manifests as the deed;The deed develops into habit;And the habit into character. So, watch the thought and its ways with care.As the shadow follows the body,As we think, so we become. (Buddha)
