What is Meditation?
Meditation is an ancient practice that some sources have dated back to 5000 bc. It is a complete mind-to-body practice in which you focus your attention on the present. The practice looks to promote awareness and improve well-being by harnessing the power of your breath and clearing your mind from distractions.
Forbes magazine state that types of meditation vary throughout each person’s practice and can include breathing-based meditation, mindfulness practices, nature-based visualization, mantra, and spiritual meditation. Meditation can be practiced alone, in a group, or with a coach or therapist.
