Neuroscientist Sara Lazar, of Mass General and Harvard Medical School, started studying meditation by accident. She sustained running injuries training for the Boston Marathon, and her physical therapist told her to stretch. So Lazar took up yoga.

Do you think meditation really helps keep minds young?

I don’t ever want the brain of a 25 year old again.

As I round the corner of 54... I recognize that while I say age is a number... I am physically rounding the corner of 54 years on the planet. And even thought, in my minds eye I am 30 something, the queues from the younger generation illustrate how they view me. Old. Unknowing. maybe even doddering. I am at best Aldus Dumblerdor and at worst the nutty professor. The problem in my mind isn't my inability to think like a 25 year old... it's just that when I was 25 the world was a different place. I was different. Thank you for this discussion. The question to me is... what is a young mind.

The art of clearing one’s mind through meditation has been used to enhance performance with athletes, the military, and has been introduced within schools as a tool to centre and focus without distraction on the task at hand. Essentially, that’s what meditation is, aligning your attention completely to the present moment.

A group of Harvard Neuroscientists, led by Sara Lazar, Ph.D., have reported the changes in gray matter structure of the brain following eight weeks of mindfulness meditation. Thirty minutes a day led to participants in the study being non-judgemental and more aware within their actions.

Mindfulness meditation pain relief involves multiple brain mechanisms which results in reducing pain. In mindfulness practice we pay more attention to the pain we are suffering, and bringing an intense focus to the painful sensations.

Studies show meditation can assist you in being less stressed, and increase clarity of mind and decision making. Regular practitioners say it is life changing and helps us to deal with challenging situations.
