Meditation is a relaxing practice that helps you to let go of stress and refocus your mind. There are many different forms of meditation and they all can have a slightly different effect and result, depending on the type of practice you follow.
The main goal when meditating is to quieten or still the mind. This is because the mind can generate stressful or anxious feelings and meditation can help to reduce a lot of nervous energy and anxiety. So to summarize, meditation is:
‘A state of deep peace, which is attained when the mind is silent or focused on one simple thing and is in the present moment ’
The other benefit of meditation is that it helps those that practice it regularly to ‘live in the moment’. This is part of the philosophy of Buddhism or Mindfulness, which suggests that we pay attention to the present moment only, as much as possible. The art of meditation is perfect as a support for the practice of Mindfulness or Buddhism, as a way to help us to let our thoughts go and focus only on the present.
