Many doctors promote the health benefits of meditation. However, finding the focus to sit still for even a short period is hard for many people. Meditation aids are meant to help clear the mind by focusing on something other than your thoughts. Whether it's beads to chant with or a beautiful stone to stare into, most of us need a meditation aid to get our practice off the ground. Don't be shy to use these tools to enhance the efficacy of your meditation, or put one in a meditation room to create a peaceful environment.
