MAINTENANT DISPONIBLE EN FRANÇAIS: Le cerveau du bien-être
Trouver la joie, la sérénité, le bien-être est le travail d'une vie d'introspection, de méditation et de transformation personnelle.

We had a research team on hand to perform a pilot study, and when the data came back from the lab, we were amazed at the results.
We measured cortisol, the master hormone of stress. We also measured secretory immunoglobulin A, SigA for short. SigA is a Y-shaped antibody molecule found in body fluids like saliva, mucus, tears, and sweat. It neutralizes invading viruses. (...) Levels of SigA are one measure of the strength of your immune system.
After the weekend, the baseline cortisol levels of the 34 participants dropped by 29%. Their levels of SigA rose by 27%, though the results were not statistically significant because of the small number of participants. Their resting heart rate, a measure of overall health, dropped by 5%, while their pain level decreased by 43%.
We also measured their psychological well-being, and found that anxiety and depression declined by over 25%. Happiness went up by 11%.
