how does meditation reduce stress? - episode 160


What’s this episode about?
You've probably heard that meditation can reduce your stress.

And, yes! It can!

But in what way? And which kind of meditation? And how much do you need to do?

Can you tell me more now?
In today's podcast, I tackle the answers to these questions with the help of research reported and interpreted in the book Altered Traits by Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson. (A book you should absolutely pick up --it's a great read with tons of sobering information about what we know and don't know about the effects of meditation. I loved it.).

What can I do with that?
I go into that in the episode! Today's break down should help put meditation practice into context, especially if you're using meditation to calm the frig down and get rid of stress.

I share which style of meditation may be the best for stress reduction, based on available research, and frame this week's ISHTA sat yam kriya practice in light of this stress reduction style.

I hope you’ll give it a listen:
