Meditation is a fantastic relaxation technique. But it takes much practice to get to the point of sitting still without a million emotions & thoughts passing through the mind. Breathing techniques can be very powerful in calming the mind, preparing it for deep meditation. This is because there is a direct link between the breath and emotion.
Research on meditation is flourishing. It has been shown to increase well-being, decrease stress and boost immune function (Davidson et al., 2003), increase focus and attention (Jha et al., 2007), increase feelings of connectedness to others (Hutcherson, et al. 2008), and to increase compassion. Groundbreaking research with both novice and long-term meditators has shown that a part of the brain associated with awareness of self and others, the insula cortex, gets bigger with through the practice of meditation (Lazar et al., 2005)
