What is Meditation?

So, what is meditation? In its simplest form, meditation is a way of training our minds to focus and be more present. When we meditate, we focus on our breath or a mantra (a word or phrase that we repeat to ourselves) and let go of all other thoughts. This can be difficult at first, but with practice, it gets easier. The more we meditate, the better we get at it.


There are many different methods of meditation. Some people prefer to focus on their breath, while others find a mantra or word or phrase to repeat helpful. You may also want to try sleep meditation or meditation music. The important thing is to find the method that works best for you and stick with it!
