What are the benefits of meditation?

Meditation allows mental activity to slow down in a natural way whilst alertness is maintained and enhanced. Meditating leaves people feeling mentally refreshed, calmer, more relaxed and with a greater sense of well-being. Benefits increase with regular practice.  Those who practice meditation or mindfulness regularly find that they feel at ease with the world, often linked with improvements in self-esteem, self-confidence and inner peace.  It can also help to improve concentration and the ability to learn and remember. 

A systematic review of 144 studies found that meditation was markedly more effective in reducing anxiety than other techniques.  Meditation has also consistently been found to reduce depression, hostility, and emotional instability, indicating the growth of a more stable, balanced, and resilient personality.
