When you’re feeling pressured, it’s important to re-center the mind and body. Here are three simple ways to start:

1. Breathe. 

Take one deep inhale. Hold. Take one deep exhale. Now repeat ten times, and notice how much more at ease you’ll feel.

2. Meditate.

Spend five minutes in silent meditation, eyes closed, focused on a positive symbol or image. Breathe naturally, and keep your back straight.

3. Relax.

Stretch back and unwind, or, take a few moments to do an activity that you truly enjoy. Give your mind a break from cares and responsibilities, and enjoy a few minutes of serenity.
