Mindfulness Meditation: Meditation is a great way to begin making time for yourself. Just by separating yourself from distractions, you can get in touch with your inner thoughts and emotions. Studies have shown that meditation is able to increase dopamine levels and strengthen the part of the brain that controls executive functions such as focus, impulse control, and planning. By meditating and focusing on bringing your attention to the now, you are able to train your brain to enter this attentive state.
