When I feel stressed, emptying my mind with meditation helps. Meditation is not simply sitting cross-legged saying, “ohmm.” It’s closing your eyes, focusing on breathing deeply until your thoughts cease and all is quiet. If you happen to have a thought, let it drift away and think about your inhale and your exhale. Just take long, deep breaths and ignore all the things you have to do, just for a few minutes. Listen to the sound of your breathing, forget all else. If this is not enough to calm you down, add gentle stretches such as lifting your hands overhead and reaching toward the ceiling or bending forward at the waist while sitting down. You don’t have to sit cross-legged; whatever feels comfortable works.

You can continue for as long as you want.

I hope meditating helps you as much as it helps me.

  1. […] the better, but if chakra meditation doesn’t seem like the right fit for you, you can try a simple meditation […]

  2. What an incredibly beautiful, loving and truthful article. It really IS that simple

    Thank you.

    To experience and appreciate the “life force” within our breath is the greatest source of personal peace, because living within the conscious feeling of this power will tame our crazy mind and allow us to be who we really are – our true self – in peace and love.

    The gift of breath is everything – the beginning and end of human life. This is not something to be taken for granted, but is a reason, every moment of our life, to feel appreciation and infinite gratitude.
