New You Anti-Aging Tip: Try meditation to live pain free. 

Latest scientific evidence shows that mindfulness meditation training is not only good for the mind, it is great for the body as well. According to Brown University scientists, mindfulness meditation training involves sharp attention to the body’s breath and functions and may be a key factor in preventing depression and reducing the distress of chronic pain. In a Frontiers in Human Neuroscience paper researches indicate that through training, meditators learn to control not only what specific body sensations to focus on, but also how to veer that focus away from negative physical and emotional feelings: This works through repeated sensory focus. Thus practice makes pain free. Meditation is not as simple as a riding a bike, however, so take the time to look into classes near you and embark on a natural journey to total mind and body health.
