To Reduce Pain and Alter Your Brain, Try Meditation

Meditation is a known painkiller, and a new study has revealed why -- meditation changes the way your brain processes pain signals.

Researchers report that practicing mindfulness meditation for just four days affects pain responses in your brain. Brain activity decreases in areas devoted to monitoring a painful body part, and also in areas responsible for relaying sensory information.

Live Science reports:

“The practice known as mindfulness meditation involves sitting quietly and comfortably while breathing evenly. The idea is to clear the mind and focus the attention on the present.”
