Meditation is a popular mind-body therapy often used to improve overall health and well-being. The most common type involves focusing attention on the breath, a word or phrase, or what is happening moment to moment. Meditation can help calm the mind, relax the body and better manage emotions, which can lead to improvements in emotional well-being and quality of life.
