Sleep

On Meditation

Research suggests that meditation can change brain structure, enhance mental abilities and work alongside traditional medicine to speed up healing. 

Certainly, when I learned Transcendental Meditation back in 1989 it was a life-changing experience, though I gradually moved away from the more cultish aspects of TM. Perhaps anyway, as the Dalai Lama put it, "sleep is the best meditation".
