Meditation and running as methods to improve mood | Charles Raison
Several researchers believe that meditation can produce the same types of mystical experiences as psychedelic drugs. Long-term meditators exhibit different patterns of activities and changes in volume in some regions of their brains. Even non-experienced meditators may experience changes in their brain following a two-month rigorous meditation program. Dr. Patrick shares that while she is not a meditator in the traditional sense, she finds running to have meditative and mood elevating qualities. In this clip, Dr. Charles Raison and Dr. Rhonda Patrick discuss the potential benefits of meditation and running to improve mood.
