Meditation improves concentration

Below are two interesting articles on how meditation can help improve your concentration. Participants in the study attended a three-month retreat in which they went without television, phones, the Internet and books. They also practiced meditation for 5 hours a day. They had instructor-led meditation in the morning and evening, and they spent most of their free time in solitary meditation.

Both articles talked about the same study that was conducted.
