Meditation is a form of mental relaxation that has been used successfully for thousands of years. It is known to help people who suffer from depression or anxiety and also helps reduce stress.
Begin by imagining yourself outside in your favorite place in nature. It could be a relaxing tropical beach, it could be a flourishing old garden, or maybe a peaceful forest. Choose a location that feels good for you.
Aromatherapy, exercise, deep breathing, sound therapy and visualization are only some of the methods out there for combating stress.
