The Mayo-Clinic states that meditation is a type of mind-body complementary medicine. Our minds are usually filled with thoughts of experiences in the past, or our worries and anxieties about the future - all of which can increase our stress. Meditation is a very natural way of releasing stress and bringing the mind to the present moment.
Benefits of Meditation
Benefits of meditation include improved clarity of mind, increased focus and concentration, enhanced physical and emotional well-being and increased energy to meet your goals.
