Meditation: n. thinking without anxiety and/or emotion
Some meditation is primitive or minimal thinking such as concentrating on breathing in and out or visualizing a peaceful landscape and little else. This meditation can be helpful if you are very stressed and emotionally keyed up and it can help you to relax.
However, meditation can also be quietly thinking about a subject without anxiety and/or emotion. If you have had an unpleasant confrontation or have a difficult problem to solve then calmly thinking about it in your spare time can frequently lead to a better understanding of the situation and the meditation can actually lead to a beneficial future solution.
The best meditation is meditation with a purpose. Meditation can be to calm you emotionally and/or it can be to solve problems. If you learn or succeed in meditating then not only will you calm yourself down when needed but you may actually find solutions to problems in your life too.
