Meditation has been something that has helped me with my anxiety and depression. I struggled with both immensely after my husbands death 4 years ago, but meditation has helped me regain my focus and helped me relax.

Well, if you are already practicing meditation then transitioning into yoga shouldn't be that difficult. That way you will incorporate the meditation and exercise aspect.

Hi,i appreciate your writing.I have some words with meditation.With the digestion of meditation into day by day life,your consciousness develops and in time,can encounter the higher and refined states of consciousness.When your consciousness advances and stretches,the aggravations throughout your life get to be unimportant.Outrage and frustrations get to be momentary emotions that happen momentarily and afterward vanish.You begin living in 'the moment' and let go of 'the past'.Have a nice day.
