Meditation is also a growing trend in America, but is done differently throughout the world. It is considered complementary and alternative medicine. Common forms of meditation originated in Buddhist and Hindu cultures, but most religions have some form of meditation, and not all meditation is religious. Various forms of meditation serve different purposes. Transcendental meditation, for example, receives many celebrity endorsements for its believed ability to enable and empower individuals to accomplish great things and remain at peace. Meditation has been said to heal health ailments, instill peace, grow character, release anxiety, improve focus, heal depression, beat stress and more.
