Mindfulness practices can help improve your ability to regulate emotions and decrease stress, anxiety and depression. Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment. Practicing mindfulness techniques such as guided imagery and breathing exercises may help you relax, reduce stress and anxiety, lower your blood pressure and experience other positive effects on your mental and physical health, according to the Mayo Clinic.
You can practice mindfulness anywhere, without any equipment, and at no cost to you! To get started, check out the following resources.
