Mindfulness and meditation have become buzzwords these days, and with good reason – it can transform not just your life but the world around you too. Sustaining our beautiful planet and caring for fellow humans comes natural to a mindful individual. A study by Massachusetts General Hospital found that as little as eight weeks of meditation not only helped people feel calmer but also produced changes in various areas of the brain, including growth in the areas associated with memory, empathy, sense of self, and stress regulation. Join us as we explore this topic through an article and an audio conversation between Jeslin Varghese and Paulina Marinkovic.
