Meditation & Focusing

Meditation is a behavioural technique to slow down the level of nervous system arousal and excitation in the body and induce a relaxed physiological state, no more or less. The fact that meditation is sometimes frowned upon because of perceived theological or spiritual associations can result in the loss of a remarkably powerful and easy to use, cost free coping resource tool.
