Meditation has some very healthy benefits. Practicing mindfulness reduces stress — stress management is one of the most common reasons most people start meditating.
It can also control anxiety, create a more positive outlook on life, increase your attention span and the ability to concentrate, improve memory, improve sleep, decrease blood pressure, help control pain and manage addictions.
Best of all, you can meditate anywhere, and you don’t need much space to practice. You can see all these effects with short daily sessions and there are even meditation apps, such as HeadSpace.
