Whenever we feel anxiety or fear, we are experiencing the effects of a hyper-stimulated area of the brain called the amygdala. Meditation works by soothing overactivity in the brain by engaging the valuable rest and recovery part of our nervous system instead. Don’t be put off trying meditation because you think your mind is too busy. It’s a myth that you have to completely silence your thoughts to be meditating ‘correctly’. Comfort, ease and being able to welcome the activity of mind, without control or judgment, are essential tips in adopting an enjoyable daily meditation practice.
