Mental relaxation and stress reduction are the most important reasons why people in our society (start to) meditate. Meditation is an excellent tool to relax and is effective as a ‘relaxation paracetamol’ when you need it in that moment, as well as a ‘relaxation vitamine’ when you like to have more structural relaxation in your life. The latter is where meditation is different from relaxation exercises or the most other forms of relaxation. It trains your capacity to relax and after a bit of practice you become more structurally relaxed, instead of needing a new dose of ‘relaxant’ every time again.
