If you're interested in a more stable, peaceful, or calm life, meditation and mindfulness may be a way to improve your sense of well being. WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Michigan Medicine OB/GYN Dr. Frank Anderson, who also co-founded "Ann Arbor Open Meditation," about how a sense of awareness and being in the present moment can help you feel more balanced and choose to respond versus react in stressful situations.
