The surprising science of happiness | Wellness and Laughter | Scoop.it
Dan Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness," challenges the idea that we’ll be miserable if we don’t get what we want. Our "psychological immune system" lets us feel truly happy even when things don’t go as planned.

Harvard Yoga Scientists Find Proof of Meditation Benefit

Harvard Yoga Scientists Find Proof of Meditation Benefit | Wellness and Laughter | Scoop.it
Scientists are getting close to proving what yogis have held to be true for centuries -- yoga and meditation can ward off stress and disease.
Happiness Blueprint 's insight:

Meditation is silencing the mind. When my mind is silent, which it often isn't,  my concentration increases and I experience inner peace in the midst of my turmoil: living in NYC, or for that matter, living in this world. Inner peace is what attracts me and many others to meditation. We can all benefit from it.

 

When I attended Cal Arts in the 1970s, everyone did Tai Chi. You would see people in the halls, in the hills and on mountain tops practicing Tai Chi. It was where I learned about breath and meditation.

 

Today I practice "Chocolate YUM Meditation". I find it easy and fun. And, eating chocolate while meditating supports cardiovascular health by lowering cholesterol and improving blood pressure. 

 

I suggest trying all different types of meditation to see what works for you.
