Should I still meditate if I cannot stop thinking?
How to Use Meditation for Frustration, Anxiety and Stress
by Kathleen Lisson
Have you ever read the same paragraph over and over and not 'got it' because you feel frustrated about something that happened earlier in the day?
Have you ever 'blanked out' for a test you have studied before because of anxiety?
A regular meditation practice can help with these situations, especially when seated meditation is full of thoughts. In this fun 13 minute talk, San Diego based Warriors at Ease and Mindful Schools curriculum trained meditation teacher Kathleen Lisson shares the role of the prefrontal cortex, amygdala and hippocampus in stressful situations and how meditation can help us think straight and improve test anxiety.
