How it feels to have a stroke

Imagine being a brain scientist and having the ability to experience a massive stroke and come back to talk about it.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened, as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding, she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful talk seen by over 18 million viewers.

This is a new article by Dr. Mercola about how to reduce risk of having a stroke.

All it takes is ten mindful minutes!

Do you give yourself time to rest and meditate every day?

The positive health effects of meditation have been well documented for more than fifty years. Meditation lowers heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and cortisol levels. It promotes the release of thyroid-stimulating hormone and human growth hormone and increases L-arginine and vasopressin levels. Arginine and vasopressin help with memory and learning. Meditation also reduces stress and fear and promotes clarity of mind. ~ from The Better Baby Book by Dave “Bulletproof Executive” Asprey and his wife Lana Asprey M.D.

It only takes ten minutes and you don´t have to burn incense or drink herbal tea, nor sitting cross-legged on the floor. Watch the above video and get inspired by Andy Puddicombe.
