Despite what you may think, meditation does not have to be difficult. In fact, you can teach yourself how to meditate in 10 minutes or less with the help of some online resources.
One study found that after an 8 week meditation program, 95% of those with worries and pain had a moderate reduction in their symptoms.
Being Grateful Literally Changes Your Brain Chemistry
One of the most important aspects of positive psychology is gratitude. Studies show that gratitude can change how your brain is wired.
Gratitude is not the same as being happy. Being grateful just means that you are making an effort to show appreciation for kindness and for the good things you have in your life.
If you want to get similar results to those in the study, you have a few options. You can also write letters of gratitude to people in your life each week, but that's not the only option.
