5. Strengthens cognitive function
Aside from emotional well-being, your cognitive functions are impacted just as positively from meditation. The practice stimulates brain activity, particularly in the frontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for developing problem-solving skills and good judgement. It also helps activate the prefrontal cortex, which houses cognitive behavior, enhancing the ability to focus and sustain attention. After routine meditation, you learn how to remain focused on a single thought, which can easily be translated into the action of focusing on finishing tasks.
