Meditation is a part of yoga which refers to a mind and body practice that has scientifically proven benefits. These benefits include increasing calmness and concentration, improving psychological states and overall well-being. Studies also suggest regular meditation practice can lead to improved cognitive fitness parameters such as alertness, attention span, reflexes, and mental clarity (Pascoe et al, 2017). Meditation and mindfulness practice has the potential to reduce negative psychological patterns such as poor sleep, mind wandering, worrying, brain fog and addictions (Jason et al, 2014). Furthermore, it is found that regular meditation can reduce the risk of age-related conditions such as increased blood pressure, memory loss and dementia.
