LIVINGSTON, NJ — According to Livingston's CardioYoga, meditation is an area of health that people are becoming more aware of, but that beginning a meditation practice can be overwhelming. 

"Quieting the mind is a muscle you need to strengthen with practice, but the benefits you’ll receive from sticking with it will outweigh any reservations," the team at CardioYoga said. "From decreasing anxiety to improving imagination and creativity, meditation is an amazing tool to calm your mind and can lead to endless possibilities."
