Meditation as a mindful form of relaxation and finding peace is thus a suitable technique to counter these discomforts. In addition, positive affirmations generated during meditation can strengthen the feeling of acceptance. Thus, not only a certain self-reflection is promoted, but also mindfulness in dealing with yourself. In this way you consciously reflect on your sensations, which can help you to live in harmony with your body.
