- Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction and has the potential to improve quality of life and decrease healthcare costs.
- Meditation involves achieving a state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ in which the excessive stress producing activity of the mind is neutralised without reducing alertness and effectiveness.
- Authentic meditation enables one to focus on the present moment rather than dwell on the unchangeable past or undetermined future.

- Whether meditation involves other unique neurophysiological effects remains to be proven.
