Meditation is a term used for many forms of relaxation. The explanation of meditation is a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent. The goal of meditation isn’t to control your thoughts. It’s to stop letting them control you. It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns.

The practice of meditation can help you experience this state as a way of life. According to the Mayo Clinic, meditations can also help with conditions including depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, and chronic pain. It might also be helpful as part of a treatment programme for cancer and heart disease.

Meditation is one of the best ways to combat stress and the many health issues caused by or made worse by stress. Regardless of age, gender, or health status, anyone can benefit from some form of meditation. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best meditation apps you can download and take with you anywhere.

The flu isn’t really anything to sneeze at. Each year in South Africa it kills about 10,000 people, those five years and older. While that’s a relatively small number compared with the past year’s Covid-19 deaths, it’s still a heavy toll.

On 21 March, we will be celebrating Human Rights Day in South Africa. It is a time for us to reflect on our individual human rights, and – more importantly – to consider how we can support others to bring these ideas into reality. In other words, a reminder to embrace the spirit of “Ubuntu”, I am because you are.
