Meditation is simple, and powerful. It can calm our nervous system, lower blood pressure, decrease pain, decrease frequency and intensity of asthma attacks, boost mood, lower anxiety, and actually improve our brain chemistry.
If at any time you feel too anxious or triggered, take a moment to get to a better place. And please don’t feel badly about doing so. This is an exercise for your wellbeing – not someone else’s – and part of that is recognizing where your limits are at any given time.
