Yeah things like praying and meditation have had some psychological and medical benefits. Meditation can reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure, and
among other things.
It's good for your mind to stop and rest for a little while and gather your thoughts.
It's just like whenever your about to go into a frantic rage of anger, and you decide to stop, close your eyes, and take some deep breathes. Whenever
you are angry for example, people don't really think before they act. They act on impulse. That's why when people are angry they usually yell out
some pretty hurtful things, and commonly say "I don't know what came over me." I usually do that whenever I get very angry, and it ends up
helping. Although I don't pray or meditate to some sort of deity.
It's just a way your body prevents psychological turmoil. It's good to free your mind for a while if your in a stressful situation. Since stress can
have negative side effects to your health.
