Meditation is a self-care practice that allows you to transform how the mind reacts or relates to the world. Through practicing nonjudgment of thoughts, feelings and sensations—decrease stress and anxiety, develop emotional regulation, strengthen intuition and build awareness about a greater peace of mind. By finding ways to lower stress and reduce tension, the body has an opportunity to restore and repair on its own terms. Learn about the difference between mindfulness and meditation.
