What Can Mindfulness Do For You?
Studies show that a regular practice of mindfulness and meditation can reduce the grey-matter density in areas of the brain related with anxiety and stress.
Mental Strength & Focus
A study demonstrated that meditators improved their performance on tests of cognitive skill, in some cases doing 10 times better than non-meditators.
Learning & Memory
Long-term meditators have larger amounts of gyrification (folding in the brain), which scientists suspect helps with processing, decision-making and memory.
A regular mindfulness practice increases grey-matter density in parts of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection.
Cardiovascular & Immune Health
Researchers found that during a 5-year study the meditation control group had a 48% reduction in their risk of heart attack, stroke and death.
Researchers found that integrative body-mind training -- a mindful meditation technique -- can result in brain changes that may protect against mental illness.

Tucked into a shopping center off Oak Lawn, the recently-opened Mastermind is billed as a mental gym. The idea of working out your brain certainly isn't new (Luminosity commercials instantly come to mind), but one that I still find intriguing-we're typically so focused on workout out our body, but why not the brain?
