Meditation according to Merriam Webster is to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on one's breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness.
Meditation is great to relieve stress and anxiety. Many people meditate to get a sense of self, spiritual awareness, and relaxation. It is a great way to disconnect from the physical and material world around you.
There are multiple ways you can meditate. However, no matter what way you meditate, focus and good intention is very important.
When we meditate a lot of times it is hard to find balance, focus, and to be grounded. You have to really dig deep within yourself to find this. Down below, I listed some tips for a good mediation.
