Reduce Stress with Meditation and Breathing – How to Cultivate Calm

It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best things you can do in times of high stress is not much at all. Of course, what you’re thinking about during this quiet period of reflection and breathing makes a big difference. By practicing meditation and mindful breathing, you can reduce stress levels, increase productivity, and boost your mood.

Meditation doesn’t necessarily mean sitting cross-legged on a pillow or lying on the ground. In fact, you can do the following exercises indoors or outdoors, at work or in your car, with a free hour or a free minute. You don’t have to perfect them all, but experimenting with various techniques will help you find the method that works best for you.
