Meditation can be described as a set of techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention. Some types of meditation involve maintaining mental focus on a particular sensation, such as breathing, a sound, a visual image, or a mantra, which is a repeated word or phrase. Other forms of meditation include the practice of mindfulness, which involves maintaining attention or awareness on the present moment without making judgments.
Some health-related benefits of meditation include: better management of symptoms related to anxiety disorders, better stress management skills, changes in different aspects of attention & mindfulness, increased self-awareness, improved emotional well-being, improved working memory & fluid intelligence, improved immunity, and headache relief.
