An executive director at Aetna in Hartford, Connecticut, Tanya Taupier has developed and implemented organizational strategies designed to enhance productivity. Aside from her work obligations, Tanya Taupier enjoys regular meditation.
A 2015 article in Forbes’ Pharma & Healthcare section reports that meditation can change the brain in several ways. Researchers have studied the topic steadily for numerous years. A study completed by investigators with UCLA revealed that individuals who had engaged in meditation throughout their lives showed better-preserved brains, compared to those who didn’t meditate as they aged.
Additionally, meditation is known to reduce stress and anxiety. Jon Kabat-Zinn from the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness developed a sub-genre of meditation called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. Its prime goal is to decrease stress levels. Studies have proved that Kabat-Zinn’s system does, in fact, lower stress levels, and a team at Stanford University found that mindfulness meditation helps individuals with social anxiety disorders.
