Reduce Your Stress & Anxiety in 3 Minutes
I created this quick guided meditation for you to do any time you’re feeling stressed and anxious. It’s designed for you to do anywhere – in your car, in your office, while you’re standing in line – and the more you practice the more effective it becomes.
One of the keys to managing stress and anxiety is to change what’s happening in your body, and the one thing you have control over is your breath. The good news is that when you change the way you’re breathing, that tells your brain to change the rest of what’s happening in your body.
You can do this practice for whatever length of time you have. You’ll reduce your stress in just three minutes but you can also do this for just 5-10 breaths any time you’re stressed out. I tell my patients to practice this breathing exercise everyday, even when they aren’t feeling stressed, so that they’ll be ready to use it when they are.
