Our lives are often affected by the hectic pace of everyday life and the stress of not always being able to get everything done. Our mind does not stop thinking for a single moment and this affects the feeling of not feeling rested or relaxed. Meditation is a technique that helps us to calm our mind, relax our body and find inner peace. In addition, learning to meditate helps to improve your self-esteem. Although relaxation is not the goal of meditation, it is often one of the results of meditation. The real goal of meditation is to be aimless, simply to be present.

In Buddhist philosophy, the main benefit of meditation is to free the mind from attachment to things that cannot be controlled, such as external circumstances or intense emotions.
