Many of us are feeling devastated by the election results. We feel rage, anger, resentment and fear. While it's important to mourn this loss we must not be the victim. We can't change the outcome but we can change how we experience it. One great way to calm your nervous system and release the stress of the election is to meditate. Having a meditation can become a part of your daily routine and you can do it anytime, anywhere. Meditation is one of the best ways to calm your anxiety.
To prepare for your meditation, create a space in your home that is quiet, uncluttered and serene. This space can be dedicated to your practice. Keep in mind, though, that you really can meditate anywhere. You can meditate on a park bench, at your desk, in the bathtub, even on the subway.
The first mediation can silence your mind and calm your energy in just 1 minute.
This practice is called The One-Minute Breath.
For one minute follow this breathing technique:
  • Breathe in for 5 seconds
