Does anyone meditate and had positive results?

Stress levels among women have been rising steadily for the past five years, outpacing men’s, says the American Psychological Association’s 2010 survey. Fifty percent of the women surveyed say they lose sleep at night because of stress, and report that fatigue interferes with their willpower to exercise, choose better eating habits or make healthy lifestyle changes.
Other surveys have found that nearly twice as many women than men are affected by depression and anxiety. It’s no wonder that closing the eyes and diving within — to a place where stress and fatigue melt away — has gained such widespread appeal among women.
