I used to meditate alot about 5 years ago, but then trailed off. I recently borrowed a Yogic Chanting cd from the library. Wow, I love it. Practicing gives me a unique sense of calm and tranquility. I think it stimulates the alpha brain waves or something. Its like a natural high in which you feel totally at peace. In that state of mind anger comes slowly and stress is unknown. I'd venture to say its the opposite of feeling stressed. I think if everyone in this world meditated the world would be a much more peaceful place to live. Any one else meditate? Note: for me meditation has nothing to do with religion.
