Is it actually just a fancier synonym of meditating?
No. In reality, sophrology is a mix of science and beliefs. It enables you to be much more aware of everything that is going on inside and around you. What is more, it helps you find your life’s purpose, allowing you to enjoy a less stressful being.
The technique blends physical exercises with the ones aimed at improving your mindfulness for you to discover the knowledge inside your soul. Sophrology helps you make peace with some circumstances that you have no control over to move on and be happy.
