Psychologists and physicians are finding that mediation can be extremely beneficial for our mental and physical health. Of course, exercise and eating right can be beneficial as well, but meditation has just recently gained momentum, although it has been with us a long time. Take a look at the e-Readings Chapter 5 on “Consciousness” Sec 3.3.
