meditative

The adjective meditative is good for describing something that's reflective or deeply thoughtful. Your favorite movies might be quiet, slow-paced, and meditative.

When you reflect on your life or an important decision, you are meditative, and anything that involves this state of mind can be described the same way.

The root of meditative is the Latin word meditat, or "contemplated," which in turn comes from a Proto-Indo-European root that means "to measure, consider, or advise."
