Do you believe in Meditation?

Updated: Feb 12, 2020

Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way that fitness is an approach to training the body. Lots of meditation techniques exist - how do you meditate?

You can practice meditation without needing to believe in anything.


Concentration or Breath awareness meditation involves focusing on a single point. This could entail following the breath, repeating a single word or mantra.


Mindfulness meditation encourages the practitioner to observe wandering thoughts as they drift through the mind without judgment.


This involves envisioning negative events and recasting them in a positive light by transforming them through compassion.

Relaxation is not the goal of meditation, but it is often a welcomed result.

Also, lower heart rate, calm the nerves system, lower anxiety or stress, improve focus and concentration.

Whether you consider practising meditation on a daily or weekly bases, 5 or 30minutes, you will feel a positive effect on your brain and immune function.

The goal of meditation is simply to be present.
