It’s that time of the semester; suddenly you have three essays due, four midterms, and your head feels like it’s going to explode. While it’s easy to become over whelmed and freak out as a result, don’t! Take a deep breath and remember everything passes. In stressful times it’s important to stay calm and remember to make time for our own wellbeing. Meditating can help you deal with all the craziness in your life. It’s important to dedicate time (however long you can) to yourself for your own wellbeing. Mental health is often over looked and ignored when it’s just as important as physical health because when our minds aren’t at peace, we aren’t either. That’s why meditation is so important; it can reduce stress and improve health. In fact, a simple technique will decrease anxiety, improve cardiovascular health, and help you reach a better capacity for relaxation. Fortunately, we live in a world where everything is at our finger tips, literally! With today’s technology meditating can be done anywhere (although, technology is not needed to meditate!). If clearing your mind is difficult, here are a few apps that guide you into a few minutes of peace and quiet: just what you need for midterm season!
