Meditation Use meditation techniques once or twice daily to calm your nerves and focus on reducing your stress levels.

 

  • Get into comfortable clothes.

  • Choose a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted.

  • Sit comfortably.

  • Close your eyes, relax your muscles, and breathe slowly and naturally.

  • Slowly repeat a focus phrase, such as “I am calm.”  

  • When other thoughts intrude, bring your attention back to your focus phrase.

  • When you are finished, sit quietly for a minute or two to make the transition back to your normal routine.
