They cannot let go of their thoughts and they haunt them till the end of time. Meditation soothes the mind and calms it. It helps you to understand the difference between real and imaginary. It saves you from your own thoughts and might even lead to self awareness.

The brain is the most important organ of the body. It works the most as it helps the rest of the body. It controls your nerves and it oversees the working of your body just like a great lord. Even an organ can get tired after working for too long. Too much functioning of the brain and too little rest can do great harm to the body. As the brain begins to slow, not only do you start losing your wits but also your other body functions. Hence, it is important that the brain remains at peace and is not overstressed. Meditations helps the body by slowing its working and mending it calmly. It calms the brain and all the other parts of your body. Meditation doesn't just only relieve the brain but also helps in its growth. It is a scientific truth that we do not use the full capacity of our brain. Meditation helps to unlock the potential of the brain in terms of memory, senses, empathy and regulation of muscles.
If you let your mind clutter harmful thoughts and never face your problems, then it can lead to some lasting mental and physical diseases. Many people would rather forget about their problems than try to face them. They think that if they can lock away their problems in a corner of their mind they will not be harmed by them. They run away and never look back. But after a time their life catches hold of them and then it hits hard. If a sorrow occurs then you can of course try to forget about it, work through the grief to free yourself from it. If you take the path of running away from your problems then they will hurt you even more when they catch up with you. This time you might not be able to rise up and face the world. Grief and sorrow devour the mind. They slowly eat away at your happiness then at your mind. You might not understand what is happening but working through so much sorrow is the heaviest task in the world and it takes its toll.
Meditation helps relieve your mental burden and eases your mind.
