You may have been hearing the word “meditation” a lot recently, whether it be in the news or from a friend. That’s because the practice, which started thousands of years ago, has been steadily gaining mainstream popularity in the past few years. Everyone from celebrities to some of the most successful people in business, to young people are doing it. But what is meditation exactly?
Meditation is training your brain to be aware of yourself and keep perspective. It can help people to alleviate stress, get better sleep, and improve focus. It is called the “practice of meditation” because it is a mindset that you are working towards; it gets easier the more you do it!
