with Mel Taylor, MSW, CEO and President
Meditation is a tool to abide in the present moment and to reach inner peace and calmness. Studies suggest that mindfulness meditation can physically change the brain - the parts of the brain that are responsible for anxiety and depression shrink whereas those regions associated with cognition, happiness and calmness increase in size. Studies have also found that regular meditation can boost the immune system. People in recovery can especially benefit from daily mindfulness meditations.
Meditations are listed below and will be posted daily, so follow us on social media or check this page regularly for updates. Find a quiet room to yourself, sit down and simply listen to the meditation, following Mel's prompts. If you are experiencing chronic stress and anxiety, contact us here to discuss treatment options.
