Even MORE evidence to support meditation's role in the neuroplasticity of the brain. This study found that the more years one spent meditating, the more structural changes were observed.

In essence, learning how to consistently quiet the mind can change the shape of your brain. Contact us today at the Psychology Center of Austin for support in learning this technique! 512-553-1563

Interesting 60 second podcast on the research of self-control:

http://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/episode.cfm?id=how-to-gain-self-control-12-03-10

In thinking of self-control in terms of our ability to prevent natural inclinations, what areas of life seem easiest and most difficult to exercise restraint?

Like the research suggests, tuning into posture and slightly altering your normal tendencies in carrying your body throughout the day can lead to more self control in other areas of daily life.
