Managing Stress Through Meditation

According to Stanford University Medical School, stress is the cause of at least 95 percent of illness and disease. Harvard Medical School’s website claims, “Chronic stress is linked to heart disease, stroke, and may also influence cancer and chronic respiratory diseases. And illness is just the tip of the iceberg. Stress affects you emotionally as well.”
