Whenever we encounter a stressful event, our bodies undergo a series of hormonal and biochemical changes that put as in ‘alarm mode.’ Our heart rate increases, adrenaline rushes through our blood stream,and our digestive and immune systems temporarily shut down. If the stress continue and we stay on high alert for a prolonged period of time, we experience exhaustion and burn out.

None of us can avoid stress, but we can return to a state of balance and regulation through a variety of means, including deep breathing, meditation, yoga, and exercise...These activities provide calming and relaxing sensory input for stress relief and can be selected according to lifestyle and preference.When you meditate you bring together all of the mind’s energies and focus them on a word, a sound, a symbol, a comforting image, or your own breathing.

The optimal setting for meditation is a quiet, clean place. People typically meditate sitting on the floor or in a chair with their eyes closed.A variation of traditional meditation involves guided imagery or visualization. If you use this method, you’ll
