Well, it is a New Year. I debated about the many different topics of interest and after a lot of going back and forth – between such topics as the brain effects of optimism, physical exercise, yoga, meditation or just contemplative techniques in the broadest sense, I decided I will focus on love and wisdom. Love is commonly seen as both a process and an outcome. Wisdom is mostly seen as an outcome. They are both good states of mind and, I would further argue, good states for the brain. The question is: are there proven techniques to cultivate – teach one how to love and become wiser? If so, how do they work? What are their effects? And specifically, are there psychological versus physiological benefits? Are there any counter-indications? We will try to answer as many of these questions as possible in the posts to come.
