Meditation can help people with heart disease, people who want to quit smoking and people who want to achieve a little inner peace.
Meditation means paying attention to the breath, listening, being still, said Ruben L.G. Habito of the Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University in an article in the April 22, 2014, issue of The Dallas Morning News.
“It can be as short as one breath at a time. Before you go to the next email, stop and be still and take a deep breath, and that can give you a new gust of energy and relaxation….Let that breath give you a sense of, ‘It’s OK,’ You don’t have to rush rush rush all the time.”
