Meditation can help practitioners unwind from the stress of their daily lives. Anyone can use spiritual meditation at home or in a house of worship. Various forms of meditation exist. Focused attention meditation may be the easiest form for beginners. It entails focusing on a particular thing, sound, or sensation. A common stimulus is breath awareness, in which practitioners gently dismiss all other thoughts and focus on their breathing.
Primordial Sound Meditation (PSM) or mantra-based meditation uses a mantra unique to each practitioner. Individuals silently repeat the mantra, which helps them focus.
Transcendental meditation is also a mantra-based meditation. It uses mantras and promotes inner calmness, creativity, energy, mind clarity, and happiness.
