Tyler's curator insight, January 10, 2013 8:04 AM

Meditation has always been an intriguing form of stress relief to me. Of the many different techniques, this one seems to be the most difficult for people to do. To be able to seperate our mind from the world around us is a daunting task, which is why I am glad that I found this article. This helped tremendously with my education on the subject, and I walked away far more intrigued than I was beforehand. Although I will probably stick to easier ways of reducing stress, I am glad that I at least was able to learn a bit more about meditation and the benefits that it brings.
