We who grew up in the west are good at firing up the excitable side of our nervous systems (think action movies and political arguments) but not good at learning to activate the calming, focussing side of our nervous systems. Meditation is as simple as learning basic breathing + mindfulness + muscle tone relaxation. Military calls it tactical breathing. Good biological and psychological evidence that simple meditation is a good thing to learn to do. Only a few minutes practice a day and soon it is very easy to induce that state. Good to see the stigma is wearing off and meditation is becoming mainstream.
