Is meditation part of a religion?
Yes, meditation is part of many religions. Most people associate meditation with Buddhism or Hinduism but in reality there are many religions that practice some form of meditation. It may be the Catholic who uses his or her prayers as a way to relieve stress and help them form a deeper connection to God. Even people who are not religious often practice meditation as a way to help them unwind and begin to think clearly about problems that may be plaguing their lives.

“Let me share my vision with you; I see the world without sickness, sorrow or mental disturbances in which we are living in perfect balance and abundant health and harmony.”
Dr Ann Wigmore Phd (Co-Founder of the Hippocrates Institute)
I couldn't of said that better myself. I, too share this vision, and I hope that at the end of reading this article, you may be inspired to actually taste this experience for yourselves.
We all understand that there's work and after some time, there's a need to get away from work.
Which is why we holiday. The idea is to get involved in "unwinding" activities that take us away from our workplace with the resultant diversion serving as a stress buster . So whether we ski, trek or camp, it is the diversion that helps us in de-stressing.

Meditation is a great way to relax yourself, but meditation also has many other benefits to enhance your life. Meditation means to take a break away from your daily life, from your job, from your concerns, and so on. It means to turn off your mobile phone, turn off may be your telephone and really practice meditation by yourself. Let your computer and your e-mails wait for a minute. And really give yourself some time to do meditation.

Each morning, I devote about 30 minutes of my day to sitting erect in a comfortable chair closing my eyelids, shifting my eyes in an upward position while focusing at a tiny point just above my brow, slightly inward to perform my daily meditation practice.
