Although commonly imagined to only be practiced by old people and hippies, meditation should be implemented into everyone’s daily life. A series of mental and physical techniques allow meditation to provide a clear mind due to a shift in awareness. Often, it is reported that after meditation a sense of calm and peace arrives. Especially helpful for overthinkers, meditation permits a person to recognize that they are separate from their thoughts and feelings; therefore enabling them to release their worries and create a calm sense of mind.
