Meditation is like ...
a full body workout - only for your brain.
With meditation, you can learn to train your brain and focus your attention.
From a neuroscience point of view, you can say that there are 5 categories of brain waves. From fast to very slow. The slower the waves the more time between thoughts and more opportunity to skillfully choose which thoughts you invest in and what actions you take.
To start focusing on the breath can help to give the mind a focus point, as breath and mind work closely together. Mind and breath will start to synchronize. When your breath lengthens your brain waves begin to slow down.
By now, the vast benefit of mediation is known by most. Meditation is not only for yogis and yoginis but also athletes swear on its benefits and big corporations offer it to their employees as means to manage stressful situations. Still, many people are not sure how to build and cultivate a personal meditation practice and routine.

How to incorporate meditation into your daily schedule?
I will not tell you it is all "easy-peasy", because any form of a new routine in our life demands some kind of persistence.
Although as a beginner or a re-starter, you might find it much easier when joining a meditation circle or find your personal meditation teacher, who guides you through the first steps.
There are so many different types and styles of meditation. It can be overwhelming and stress you even more instead of finding some peace of mind.
