The whole aim of meditation is, 1. to calm your mind, and 2. to focus the mind on one thing. It not only helps you to relax and control your thoughts healthwise it will help you to control anger – high blood pressure patients will realise that their pressure is coming under control.

Things that I didn’t quite understand before I started seem a bit clearer afterwards.

meditation iz verry effective!!! the best thing to do is go outside where u are only surrounded by nature. kinda lay down and relax. make perfectly sure u are not worried about anything. think about happy things that have happened in your life. sit and do that for atleast 30-60 minutes.
