In times like these, we need practical, actionable ways of coping with stress, fear, and anxiety. Meditation can help you deal with stress and negative emotions. Multiple studies have shown that meditation can help reduce levels of depression and anxiety, along with helping people tolerate pain better.

This meditation exercise is an excellent introduction to meditation techniques.

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.

  2. Close your eyes. 

  3. Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.

  4. Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
