I’ve been meditating every day for almost the whole last decade. Meditation is one of the most beneficial practices one can engage in, especially in difficult times like this. It not only reduces the stress level short-term but it also lowers the overall stress and anxiety long-term if done regularly. Unfortunately, most of us get swept up in life’s pace and don’t make time for it but not making time for it can be a real loss for our health.
Here are some tiny mindfulness exercises that can help to quickly lower the stress levels:
- Try lying down with your eyes closed, palms up and simply focus on your breath and gradually slow your breath down.
- Or spend a few minutes sitting cross-legged and repeat a soothing word to yourself in your head.
