- Take a deep breath ~ to lower stress
- Be more compassionate ~ to self as well as others
- Plan your day ~ make a to-do list
- Focus on the positive
- Meditation involves mindfulness and reduces anxiety, pain, stress, insomnia, and depression. Learn how to enjoy "just being" instead of constantly "doing."
I spent an hour exercising this morning, using the suggestions in my Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions book (pp. 103-124). Unlike the classes I've been attending here at the Crown Center, this book includes floor exercises. Clawdia was curious about my being on the floor, and I had to keep shooing her out of my way. I've decided to alternate exercising (MWF) and meditating (TThS).
