Meditation And Sex Are The Same To Your Brain

We often see people break down in depression, or incapable of thinking properly in times of great need or problems. These are people who let stress rule their lives, and its never a pretty sight to begin with. The only way for you to be free from stress is to make sure that you don’t let it rule you. Now it has been shown that the effects of meditation on your brain is much like the effects of sex.

A new study suggests that your brain reacts the same way to meditation as it does to sex. Both dissolve our sense of self-awareness, separating ourselves from our ego.The lead researcher, Gemma O’Brien found that people meditating and having an orgasm both experience “diminution of self-awareness” and “alterations in bodily perception.”When you meditate, the left side of your brain lights up and when you have sex, the right side of your brain lights up — both experiences leading to a stoppage of mental chatter in your brain and helping you lose physical and mental boundaries.

You can check out more on the study at Scientific American.
