What Is Meditation?

Meditation is a technique that involves slowing down and turning inward, practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness can be defined as full attention to the present moment with nonjudgmental acceptance. Mindfulness Meditation helps individuals cope more effectively with uncomfortable thoughts and feelings, decreasing stress. Benefits of mindfulness include more positive emotions, less worry, reduced reactivity to stress, and improved overall health.
