page Reduce Stress
In a stressed state, it’s easy to lose touch with inner peace, compassion, and kindness; in a relaxed state, your mind is clear and you can connect with a deeper sense of purpose and altruism. Meditation and medication are derived from the Latin word medicus, to care or to cure. A time of quiet calmness is, therefore, the most effective remedy for a busy and overworked mind. Any time you feel stress rising, heart closing, mind going into overwhelm, just bring your focus to your breathing and quietly repeat with each breath:Breathing in, I calm the body and mind; breathing out, I smile.
