Reflection: Stopping to reflect is a technique of mirroring our own thoughts (good or bad). The ways we think, act and feel as we interact with the stimulus. As William Shakespeare put it, many years ago, ”There exist nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so”.
Meditation: Observing silence. It is a key for Brain longevity. Meditation alone is insufficient, it needs to be Supplemented with diet and exercise. The use of meditation for a specific PHYSIOLOGICAL Purpose (i.e. cortisole reduction) is a key for our brain logerity and also reduction of blood pressure, heart rate and immune system function. An overproduction of cortisole can have potentially devastating effects on our health. Chronic stress produces too much cortisole in our body. BE AWARE!
