The act of meditating is accomplished when you close your eyes and fully concentrate on your breathing, disregarding any thoughts that enter your mind. While this sounds simple, the process of completely clearing your mind is one that’s actually difficult to accomplish. Turning off your thoughts for just a few minutes a day can offer a variety of benefits, with just a few being stress relief, clarity and treatment of depression. These 20 blog entries explore all the different ways that regular  meditation can improve your health and well-being.

This can help you reduce your blood pressure and relax, easing the tensions of the day. These five blog articles explain how to meditate and why it helps reduce stress.
