What are the benefits of meditation?
« on: 28/07/2015 19:27:13 »
Very often when I read articles about meditation or yoga I hear that these practices are somehow special because they cause changes in the brain. I  thought that anything we do changes our brains- learning another language, studying, learning how to drive a car, everything! Are the changes caused by meditation somehow special and different than ordinary changes in brain?

I live in Denver, the mile high city.  The altitude is obviously 5280 ft.  When using the oven, food is consistently over-baked even if I follow the high altitude instructions. Would it be better to decrease the baking time or the oven temperature? I've essentially quit baking altogether because it is ruined most of the time. Thank you for your time and expertise!
