Meditation shown to be effective treatment for late-life depression

Most days, Donna Watson has a shower, eats breakfast and gets ready for her day. Along with these morning habits, she also does one important activity for both her mental and physical health – she meditates. 

“It helps me to stay in tune with my body and my mind. And with myself. I now feel more confident and capable of going about my daily living without the fear and panic attacks that I was once facing. I feel more relaxed, I worry less and I take one day at a time,” explains Donna.
