Meditation has been around for thousands of years Now scientists are looking to see what physiological effects it really has on practitioners.
With our ever-increasing busy lives, more and more people are asking: “What is the science behind meditation?”
The physical act of meditation generally consists of simply sitting quietly, focusing on one’s breath, a word, or phrase. A mediator may also be walking or standing.
