ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Meditation is a way of taking a break and calming your mind. It's like going to a quiet room in your head and just taking a break from the outside world. To do meditation, you just need to sit comfortably and close your eyes. Then take a few deep breaths, and focus on the feeling of the air going in and out of your body. As thoughts come in, notice them but don't get caught up in them. Then let the thoughts go, and just focus on your breath. You can do this for a few minutes or longer if you'd like. Meditation can help with stress and anxiety, and can relax your body and your mind.
