Stress, anxiety, worries and negative thoughts are unavoidable aspects of being alive. Every single person on the planet has to go through challenging times and if anyone claims otherwise, that person is not being truthful. The only thing that differentiates us from one another is our capability to cope and deal with the challenging times we experience.

One universal practice that is used by people all over the world to cope with difficult times is Meditation. Meditation helps us control our minds and relax which in turn enables us to achieve a state of mind in which we can eliminate negative thoughts, worries, anxiety and deal with the problems and the difficult times we are experiencing in a calm and cool manner.

Additionally, Meditation has many positive benefits for our health which includes a decrease in physical tension, lower blood pressure, a strengthened immune system and slowing down of the aging process. According to The American Heart Association, meditation may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
