Yeah, meditation and mindfulness are words that have a bit of a new-agey ring to them. There are reams of neuroscience and psychology studies that show various benefits of the technique though, and if anyone doubts the damage stress can do to the body they should read Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers.
I’m planning to do sitting meditation for 30-60 minutes a day when I begin the diet to help with the hunger/pain/whatever other sensations. I’ve been meaning to make a habit of it for months for the health benefits, so the diet should be good motivation.
