      Meditation includes a number of Asian and Western practices that involve resting quietly in a seated, standing or lying position, and performing simple mental exercises designed to relax the body and focus concentration. Meditation can help lower blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate; improve blood flow and cholesterol levels; and reduce stress, anxiety and chronic pain. It has also been used to help people overcome drug abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.
      Relaxation techniques are incorporated in many meditation approaches, including: yoga, transcendental meditation, progressive relaxation, guided imagery, and self-instruction.
