A meditative practice helps to “optimize” how the brain uses resources. The more you practice meditation the easier it becomes. Meditation helps improve connectivity by letting different brain regions communicate faster and more efficiently. By controlling your attention as you meditate — you feel more relaxed and at peace with the world. As a result, you learn how to respond, rather than react, to situations in your life.
