M is for Meditation and Mental Health!

Breathing is not only a physical action, but a mental one too. Mindful meditation is a way for individuals to focus on their present thoughts and emotions and use breathing techniques to sort their experiences and reflect on the ways they react to their present environment. Meditation can provide more than a relaxing state of mind: it can help reduce stress that can negatively affect both our mind and body. This connection between a physical (breathing) and a mental (thoughts and emotions) action can be a starting point to a healthy mental routine.
