May Reduce Age-Related Memory Loss:
Improvements in attention & clarity of thinking can help keep your mind young.
Kirtan Kriya is a method of meditation that combines a mantra or chant with repetitive motion of the fingers to focus thoughts. It improved participants’ ability to perform memory tasks in multiple studies of age-related memory loss.
Furthermore, a review of 12 studies found that multiple meditation styles increased attention, memory & mental quickness in older volunteers.
In addition to fighting normal age-related memory loss, meditation can at least partially improve memory in patients with dementia. It can also help control stress & improve coping in those caring for family members with dementia.
The improved focus you can gain through regular meditation may increase memory & mental clarity. These benefits can help fight age-related memory loss & dementia.
