There has been growing interest in meditation as a form of self care, but limited verified research on the benefits.

Dr Lin said: “People’s interest in meditation and mindfulness is outpacing what science can prove in terms of effects and benefits but it’s amazing to me that we were able to see how one session of a guided meditation can produce changes to brain activity in non-meditators.

“It’s great to see the public’s enthusiasm for mindfulness, but there’s still plenty of work from a scientific perspective to be done to understand the benefits it can have, and equally importantly, how it actually works.

“It’s time we start looking at it through a more rigorous lens.”
