1. Practice Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation are practices for calming the mind and anxiety reduction. By paying attention to your breathing, your body sensations and surroundings without judgment, you develop awareness and relaxation.

How to Implement:

• Sit quietly for a few minutes each day to breathe.
• Start with meditation sessions at YO1.
• Practice mindful activities like walking, eating or washing dishes by being fully present to the experience.

2. Do Regular Physical Activity

Endorphins produced by exercise are mood elevators. Exercise also reduces levels of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol which reduce mood and anxiety.

How to Implement:

• Choose activities that interest you - walking, jogging, swimming or yoga.
• Try to fit in thirty minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week.
• Move more physically throughout the day by taking the stairs, taking a quick walk during breaks, or stretching at your desk.


3. Maintain a Healthy Diet

A healthy diet might affect your mood and energy. Nutrient-rich foods give the body and mind the building blocks for optimal function and fewer anxieties and stresses.

How to Implement:

• Fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains and lean proteins would work well.
• Caffeine, alcohol and sugary foods are also limited to avoid anxiety symptoms.
• Drink lots of water during the day.

4. Establish a Sleep Routine

Good sleep is important for mental health. Sleep deprivation may decrease emotional stress and anxiety and regular sleep may enhance mood, cognitive function and well being.

How to Implement:

• Sleep 7-9 hours each night.
• Establish a bedtime routine that signals your body it's time to relax - read, bath, or do gentle yoga.
• Sleep frequently - sleeping at the same time each day (even on holidays).

5. Use Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques like deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation and visualization can release tension and create calm.

How to Implement:

• Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for one minute then exhale steadily.
• Tense and relax each muscle group in your body to create progressive muscle relaxation.
• Use guided imagery or visualization to imagine a peaceful scene or situation to distract the mind from stressors.

6. Connect with Others

Stress management and anxiety management requires social support. Talking to friends, family or a support group may provide emotional relief and decrease isolation.

How to Implement:

• Spend time with those you love and have conversations.
• Join clubs, organizations or activities that interest you to meet people and make friends.
• Seek out professional assistance if you want somebody to speak to about your stress and anxiety.

7. Make a Balanced Schedule

Work/leisure and self-care balance can prevent burnout and stress. An overly crowded schedule can increase anxiety; a balanced approach allows for rest and recuperation.

How to Implement:

• Prioritize tasks and Set realistic goals for what you can do in a day.
• Schedule regular breaks and downtime to recharge.
• Practice saying no to avoid overcommitting yourself to activities and responsibilities.

8. Practice Positive Thinking

Positive thinking redirects attention away from stressors to solutions to improve your outlook on life and decrease anxiety.

How to Implement:

• Challenge negative thoughts by questioning their validity and replacing them with positive, realistic thoughts.
• Write down things you are thankful for each day in a journal.
• Say affirmations or positive statements to build your confidence and resilience.

What is Ayurveda?

Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole. Since the constitution differs from person to person, the wellness therapies also differ and are unique to every individual.

What is Naturopathy?

Human beings have remarkable recuperative powers that can heal the body on its own without external chemical or surgical interference, which simply suppresses symptoms but does not heal nor remove the root cause of the disease. Naturopathy seeks to heal the body by promoting its own internal processes. Naturopathy gives importance to internal hygienic conditions using healing therapies such as Dietetics, Hydrotherapy, Mud therapy, Reflexology, and Massage, among others.
