There are many types of meditation. Most meditation involves focusing on breathing. Transcendental Meditation looks to release oneself from complete awareness through mantra and sound. All work to reduce stress but all also have deeper spiritual meanings as well.
The article, “Your Guide To Practicing Transcendental Meditation” by JR Thorpe looks closer at the unique elements of Transcendental Meditation. He states,
“According to the Oxford Handbook of Meditation, transcendental meditation is all about “transcending from the active mind to the silent mind” and trying to find bliss, a sense of calm, and a reduction in stress. While both are legit ways to train your brain to be present, regular mindfulness meditation training involves being aware of your own body by incorporating elements like visualization, a focus on the breath, and/or a body scan. Transcendental meditation, on the other hand, involves repeating a mantra or sound until you let go of your awareness and surroundings.”

Mind body and soul is a key element in health. When working out and exercising, we usually just think about the physical benefits but there are multiple benefits, especially if we incorporate meditation into working out. Meditation can enhance a work out and make it more focused as well.
The article, “How Meditating Can Transform Your Workout, According To Experts” by Jay Polish looks at how meditation can help with exercising. He states,
“Right before and even during your workout, you can use other meditation techniques like visualization to focus on bodily sensations. How will the kettlebell feel in my fingers? What will my feet feel like hitting the pavement up that last hill toward the end of my run? What will the weights clanking all around the gym sound like? What will the air smell like as I’m finally reaching my finish line? Imagining all of that isn’t quite the “clear your mind of all thoughts and emotions” type of meditating, but it is a powerful type of mindfulness that can get you in the zone. ”
Meditation can hence play a key role in exercise and should be used in coordination.

Mindfulness and awareness are key in life. We are not living in the present and at ease, then mistakes can occur and stress can find ways to creep into one’s life. Mindfulness meditation teaches one to focus on the present through mental visualization and breathing. It helps tune the mind to the senses and to partake in the moment itself. This type of mindset is perfect for work. Employers should encourage mindfulness training for employees to increase productivity.
The article, “What is mindfulness and why is it important in a workplace” by Kristin Finkbeiner takes a closer look at how mindfulness helps in the workplace. She states,
“Organisations are becoming more invested in the wellbeing of employees due to an increased awareness of the costs associated with an unhealthy workforce. Absenteeism, presenteeism, turnover, and a lack of productivity are all very costly issues that are closely tied to employee stress and mental health. The number of sick days lost to serious mental health issues has doubled in the past decade and mental health is the leading cause of sickness-related absences.”

Meditation, especially Eastern Meditation is originally Asian in origin from both China, India and other oriental nations. It is a stamp of not only faith but also cultural tradition and for some identity. Some Asian Americans find it to be crucial to life not only for health and faith but also identity.
The article, “Why Meditation Is Crucial for My Joy and Resilience as an Asian American” by Kim Tai looks at how meditation can help Asian American communities find resilience and joy in life. She states,
“And if you are feeling trapped and afraid, know that you are not alone. I invite you to sit—with yourself, with me, with all your Asian siblings and ancestors—and know that resilience lives deep within you. Even if it’s unfair that we should need to be so resilient in the first place—that we, as a marginalized community, have had to continue to endure systemic oppression and discriminatory violence—we have still persevered.”
With racism and hate towards many Asian communities over Covid, many turn to meditation to find solace. Any nationality can find solace in meditation though. With shootings, division and turmoil in the country, meditation can be an inward escape from the chaos, not just for Asian Americans but all Americans
