A technique for stress relief. There are many forms of meditation, all of which help to relax and calm the person who practices meditation regularly. One of the simplest forms of meditation is to sit comfortably in a quiet location and concentrate on the breath, to feel and listen to the functions of breathing and the flow of life-giving oxygen to every part, tissue, and cell in the body. The absolute focus on the breath gently pushes worries and thoughts from the mind and creates a sense of physical relaxation. Just five or 10 minutes of this meditative practice done several times a day helps to relieve anxiety and AGITATION.
