Best Meditation Apps Of 2022 – Forbes Health – Forbes


There is much more to meditation than sitting on the floor with crossed legs and closed eyes. Aside from providing the needed forum to ease your mind and refocus your energy, taking time out for yourself and quieting your thoughts could lead to all sorts of other health benefits. It’s the process of shutting out mental distractions, like thinking about work emails, and focusing your energy in the present moment. The goal is to increase calmness and psychological balance.

The practice has a long history of increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with certain illnesses and enhancing overall mindfulness and well-being, according to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH).

There are several ways to meditate and target different goals, the NCCIH says, but most have four elements: a quiet location, comfortable posture, focus of attention and breath, and openness to the process. However it’s done, the end goal is a clear and calm mental state.
