Advantages of Meditation

January 2, 2020

There are thousands of studies that have shown meditation can positively impact mental and physical health. Whether it’s by reducing stress, improving sleep, increasing focus, or improving relationships, research shows mindfulness works. In simple words,” Meditation is relaxation.” It is not about concentration, it’s actually about de-concentration. It’s not about focussing one’s thoughts on one thing, but instead on becoming thoughtless. Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts.
