Meditation has many aspects beyond one religious or secular definition. Although it is similar in function and how it is achieved, it meets multiple needs and stems from multiple traditions. Hence there are multiple ways to meditate for multiple reasons.
The article, “What Is Meditation?” by Amy Keifer from “verywellHealth” takes a closer look at meditation. She states,
“Today many people use meditation for nonreligious, non-spiritual purposes: to help manage stress, to increase their focus and awareness daily, to improve their mood, and to get mental clarity.
