Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk/Avi Arya: American Psychological Association study suggested that the stress levels among the American natives have been increasing for the first time in ten years. Further, there are numerous studies suggesting that meditation could help in relieving anxiety and reducing stress levels, further reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Light Watkins and Emily Fletcher founder of New York-based Ziva Meditation center further suggested some techniques to start out with meditation:
Meditation for 15 to 20 minutes right in the beginning of your day. One must sit upright with back relaxed and shoulders not withdrawn backward. Hands and feet must be at ease and one could stretch the legs out in front. Set a timer and close your eyes.
Allow all thoughts
