The calm mind
Just five minutes of meditation can be more than enough to help boost your mood and help you to feel better. The aim of meditation is to calm your brain by focussing on something other than the negative thoughts you’re currently experiencing – even if that ‘something else’ happens to be nothing at all!
Just set a timer for five minutes, and make an effort to push all concerns out your brain. It’s that easy!

The Power of Awe for Life-Changing Mental Change
What do we mean by awe?
Essentially, any moment where you feel overwhelmed by the scale and beauty of what you’re seeing. Perhaps the most classic example is when you emerge at the top of a mountain hike to discover a beautiful vista unfolding beneath you. That moment where your breath is taken away – is a moment of awe.
So, what exactly is going on here? What’s the brain chemistry? Why is it good for us? And what is the evolutionary function of such a mood?
As far as the best guesses go, we now believe that this sense of awe is triggered by the release of hormones in response to a massive restructuring of the brain’s neural networks. In short, you suddenly feel ‘small’, and what you’re seeing is forcing you to rethink your position.
That’s why we can equally feel the same way when looking at something of supreme beauty, or when gazing at the stars. At this moment, the bar has been reset and we are forced to look at things differently.
The need for such restructuring will come with a cascade of neurotransmitters and hormones that will support this change. And that’s what makes us feel good at that moment.
But in the long term, this is extremely good for us, because it helps us to restructure neural connections that might otherwise have been negative – and to get out of our own heads for a moment.
To put it another way, it’s a great way to get your life in perspective and to remember the grand scale of the world and the universe around you.
So, head out for a walk. And if you can’t do that, then just spend some time thinking deeply about a topic that amazes you.
