Your brain is constantly working, whether you're cramming for a deadline, doing research or simply going about your daily activities, your mind never stop processing information. Our brains need occasional break – not only to store and categorize the newly acquired information, but also to get ready for the next round of data intake.
Mindfulness is something we may associate with sitting meditation practice. Even if you do meditate, chances are that you spend most of your day off the cushion and engaging with the world around you. If you’re not one for meditation, that’s perfectly alright. Whether or not you can find a meditation group near you, you can practice building awareness in your everyday life.
Drug abuse drastically changes the brain for the worse. Addiction hijacks pleasure centers, creates ingrained behavioral patterns, and kills brain cells. The good news is you can restore the brain after addiction.
