Body scan meditation

I’m in the process of writing a few posts which are taking a bit longer than expected… some interesting topics coming soon though including an inspiring recovery interview and an article about holistic health hacks on a budget!

Yesterday I sent these three videos over to a friend who’s never tried meditation and was considering giving it a go. If you’re in the same boat and wondering about the potential benefits of meditation and where to start here’s a few interesting videos worth exploring.

The first video from Beyond Blue, explains meditation and how it can rewire the brain and lead to better overall welbeing. The second is a TED talk by a neuroscientist who lead some studies on how meditation changes the grey matter in the brain. The third is an actual meditation session lead by Jon Kabat-zinn, who was instrumental in bringing mindfulness meditation to mainstream western psychology.
