Stressed? Try This Simple Meditation Technique to Feel Better!

Need to unwind? Try this simple meditation breathing technique:

  • Take a few deep, relaxing breaths. 
  • Sit tall and relaxed. 
  • Close your eyes and take a few more breaths. 
  • Let go of your breath, don't control it – just watch it. 
  • Feel it in your nose. 
  • Feel the first place you feel the breath enter your nostrils and the last place you feel it leave. 
  • When your mind wanders – and it will and that's OK! – just bring it back to watching your breath. 
  • Do this for about 2 minutes, then lift the corners of your mouth into a smile and open your eyes. 

Better!
