THE SCIENCE OF MEDITATION

THE SCIENCE OF MEDITATION

REGULARITY CREATES IMPACT

Meditation is like a workout for your brain, and there’s ample scientific evidence to show for it. We recommend that you meditate for at least 140 minutes a week – the scientifically proven amount of time you need to practice to achieve your desired goals, whether it’s better sleep, increased productivity or a relaxed mind. With regular practice, you will notice the positive impact of these classes in yourself; friends, family and colleagues around you will notice the difference in you too!

SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN BENEFITS

Here is why science says you should practice meditation regularly –

Increases your productivity

Research has found that brief mindfulness training significantly helps improve cognition – including visuo-spatial processing, working memory, and executive functioning. All of these benefits result in higher productivity for you!

Causes physiological changes to the structure of your brain

A team of researchers at Harvard Medical School found that 8 weeks of mindfulness practice led to an increase in cortical thickness in the hippocampus, which governs learning and memory. They also found a decrease in the cell volume of the amygdala, which is responsible for fear, anxiety and stress.

Helps keep your mind relaxed

Practice of mindfulness meditation has repeatedly been proven to help improve anxiety, depression and stress. Check out this study by researchers from John Hopkins University.

Regular practice keeps
you focused and happy

The ‘Default Mode Network’, the region responsible for mind-wandering a.k.a monkey mind, is relatively deactivated in experienced meditators vs. non-meditators, resulting in more happiness and an ability to focus better.

Helps you sleep better

A study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that practice of mindfulness meditation helped significantly improve the quality of sleep for adults. With regular practice, they also found it to reduce sleep related daytime impairment, which helped improve overall quality of life.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SCIENCE

At Mindhouse, we study the meditation techniques that provide these clinically validated benefits and base our classes on the same. We work with global experts to identify & unearth the impact of meditation on our brain, and use these to design our courses, based on five identified goals – Focus, Patience, Sleep, Relaxed Mind and Relaxed Body.

While we already have some answers from research, the process of studying meditation and its impact on the human mind is an on-going journey, which is at the foundation of everything we do. As we move forward towards making meditation-based wellness accessible to more people, our focus remains on continuously and rigorously undertaking more research to make the benefits of this practice more tangible and measurable. In the near future, we promise to launch new techniques, which will show an immediate and measurable difference, so that you get the most from your practice.
