According to researchers at Canada's, The University of Waterloo, in Ontario, only 10 minutes of meditation a day can reduce stress and increase your focus.Most of us think of meditation as having to sit still and being silent for long periods of time. As it turns out, a little goes a long way.

The study was conducted on 82 subjects. One group was told to meditate for only 10 minutes, being mindful of their surroundings. The others were instructed to listen to an audio story.

Upon completion of the exercise, both groups, while being distracted intentionally, were given a task to complete. Researchers concluded, the ones who meditated were better able to focus on the task at hand.

Sounds like that 10 minutes, could be time well invested.
