Meditation is a technique used for thousands of years to develop awareness of the present moment.⁠

It can involve practices to sharpen focus and attention, connect to the body and breath, develop acceptance of difficult emotions, and even alter consciousness. It’s been shown to offer a number of physical and psychological benefits like stress reduction and improved immunity.⁠

While many spiritual traditions include meditation as a part of their teachings and practices, the technique itself doesn’t belong to any particular religion or faith. Though ancient in origin, it’s still practiced today in cultures all over the world to create a sense of peace, calm, and inner harmony.⁠

Meditation may offer a solution to the growing need to reduce stress in the midst of busy schedules and demanding lives⁠
