An effective way of dealing with stress is to learn how to reverse the body’s stress response. Meditation can be helpful. It might involve noticing thoughts, but not acting on them, allowing you to break free from your usual patterns. Alternatively, some practices include concentrating on one thing, which shifts your attention from things that might be troubling you.
You can try a classical form of meditation. To practice this, find a quiet place, remove any obvious distractions, and take a comfortable position like sitting on a chair or lying down.
Adjust your breathing by taking deep breaths in and out through your nose and bringing your attention to something serene. It can be any image or sound that helps you feel relaxed. If your mind starts to wander, be easy on yourself. Perhaps notice where your mind wandered, but gently bring it back.
You can practice mediation skills at any time, even walking, cleaning, or cooking. By regularly engaging in meditation, you might get better at escorting your attention back to the practice. Such techniques have nothing to do with magic. These are regular exercises that can help you have better control over your emotions and how you manage ongoing stresses in your life.
