Meditation can be a highly useful tool to help one manage stress. The practice of meditation has been around for thousands of years; it has roots in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism. There are many types of meditation, but the most basic form is sitting quietly with eyes closed while focusing on the breath and clearing your mind.

What is meditation

The simple practice of sitting down, closing your eyes, and focusing on a single thing. Usually your breathing. As you focus on your breathing, you clear your mind and let go of any thoughts that come up. In time, you learn to focus better. You stop being distracted by outside noise and thoughts. Instead, you feel a sense of inner peace and happiness. Meditation is becoming increasingly popular around the world. There’s a reason for that–it works! It helps people reduce stress, improve their memory and productivity, sleep better and feel happier.

In fact, research shows that practicing mindfulness can:
