Researchers in America have shown that meditation not only boosts your well-being, but also the size of your brain. They showed that people trained in Buddhist meditation had increased cortical thickness, a part of the brain associated with the things we feel, hear and see. These effects were observed in people who meditated for an average of 40 minutes per day, so it seems there's no need to be a monk to see the benefits of meditation.
