I am a big believer in Meditation to aid health. I was taught how to Meditate in Spiritual Church and have never looked back. Then in later life I was taught Tail-Chi and the movements of Qigong or Chi Gung to keep active. So you have Passive or Active meditations. I know it all seems a bit ( new age) for some people. But don't knock it till you have tried it. If you are interested I recommend Youtube as a great resource. You can sit at your computer with eyes closed and follow the narration. Or stand and move with the qigong masters to get moving..
