Meditation is the practice of focusing one’s attention inward, sometimes on a particular thought or sensation, in an effort to alter or improve mental functioning. Meditation has been practiced for centuries throughout the world and has many health benefits. It can be done sitting, standing, walking, or lying down - but it is often most effective when done without distraction.
