Before delving deeper into the mechanics of meditation and the thereupic benefits, we have to understand the basics first and foremost. What is meditation?
Meditation is a practice in which an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness , or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state.
Meditation may significantly reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain and enhance peace, perception, self-concept and well-being.
Where is the best place to meditate? Churches, temples and mosques are some of the best sacred spaces that encourage introspection and communion to find your inner tranquility. In such places people sense a powerful spiritual energy. Some people find natural places to be calming and relaxing environments. Visiting natural places like jungles, or mountains and listening to natural sounds without mechanical, or human voices, but instead letting the world's picturesque beauty wash over them.
