Animal Meditations

Studies reveal that meditation and mindfulness can help reduce stress, anxiety, & depression; reduce negative thoughts; enhance self-awareness; lengthen attention span; generate kindness; and improve sleep. When we meditate with animals physically or as our focus, curious things begin to happen, too. Check out some of our favorite studies at the bottom of this page after the meditations!
