What is meditation?

Meditation is not relaxation, it is observing your thoughts and anxieties rather than running away from them. Meditation is a simple practice that requires attention inside our body and not outside, so if our mind is restless, it is important to welcome it without judging ourselves and refocus on the present moment by concentrating as much as necessary on our breathing and the feelings of the body.
