Meditation is a method in which a person uses a technique to train concentration and consciousness and achieve a state of mental clarity, mental relaxation and stability—such as mindfulness, or the thought of concentrating on a specific object, thought or behavior.
In the practice of mindfulness, we learn how to return to, and stay in, the present moment without judgement, to anchor ourselves in the here and now on purpose.
