Meditation Techniques for Entrepreneurs

The research on mindfulness suggests that meditation sharpens skills like attention, memory, and emotional intelligence. Harvard neuroscientist expound that in addition to managing stress, research has also shown that the practice of meditation changes the brain.

After eight weeks, scientist found positive differences in five different regions in the brain that involved self-relevance, learning, cognition, memory and emotional regulation. Changes were also observed in regions associated with perspective taking, empathy and compassion; and in an area of the brain stem called the Pons where regulatory neurotransmitters are produced.

A positive change was also significant with the amygdala, the fight or flight part of the brain, central for the emotions of anxiety, fear and stress.

Meditation has been found to be extremely beneficial for entrepreneurs and top executives in helping them maximise happiness and business performance.
