Meditation is a practice that involves focusing on your breath and constantly refocusing on it to avoid distractions. It requires a high attentional load and prefrontal cortical activity, which can improve attention ability and enhance memory. Daily meditation of at least 13 minutes for eight weeks can lead to these improvements. However, non-sleep deep rest, such as Yoga Nidra, can put people into a state of deep relaxation with low attention and prefrontal cortex activation. There are two basic forms of meditation: focused attention meditation and open observer meditation. The former enhances one's ability to focus, while the latter is a cool method for restoring our ability to engage in focus and creative problem-solving.
