Does meditation help if you have rheumatoid arthritis?

ANSWER

It can, if it helps you relax and lessen stress. Meditation can be as simple as focusing on your breathing and just noticing each inhale and exhale. It doesn�t require any spiritual beliefs, and it�s not about being super-calm. Anyone can do it, and only a few minutes can make a difference. Your mind will almost certainly wander. That�s OK. Just return your attention to your breath, or whatever else you choose to focus on.
