Did you know that just 12 minutes a day of meditation can help stave off Alzheimer's disease, lower levels of depression and make you smarter? All you need to do to start meditating is find a quiet place free from distractions, sit upright and breathe. Pay attention to the way your breath comes in and out and gently bring your attention back to your breath when you're distracted. Your brain will love you for it!
