Do you constantly feel worn out? No matter how much sleep you receive, what foods you eat, and how much you exercise, it may seem as though your energy levels just won’t improve. Perhaps the problem doesn’t rest with the body. It may just rest with the mind. When was the last time you just sat around and did nothing but breathe? It’s likely been awhile. One of the best ways that you can improve your mental and emotional health–and thus your overall health–is to meditate.

You can use a small foot ladder as a shelf with focus items atop it.
2. Buddha with Beautiful Lantern and Flowers
As mentioned before, Buddha is a frequent motif in meditation. His wisdom and preference for rational thinking without emotion is something his followers aspire to utilize.
