While meditation is simply a relaxing technique, in which you spend a considerable amount of time sitting calmly and focusing on something i.e. some kind of sound, or the future you plan to spend. You can also watch videos and try yoga as it is good for both your physical and mental health. Another way to relax is by speaking with a licensed counselor.
