How to Administer and Use this Exercise to Facilitate Behavior Change: Research at the Massechusetts General Hospital found that practicing meditation on a daily basis throughout a period of eight weeks resulted in a change in brain structure, particularly with areas of the brain that are associated with memory, self-awareness, empathy and stress1. This exercise will guide you through a step-by-step meditation exercise to help with minimizing and coping with stress, particularly as a way of preventing relapse with behavioral change efforts.
