    meditiation

    5 minutes of meditation a couple times a day has been really helpful in easing some anxiety

    Would love to hear other people's experiences?

    welcome to the forum, we have a few threads about it. I do meditate for whole my long life, no maybe not whole but the 25 years for sure. I always recommend the meditation before taking medication )
    It saved my life so many times. You should try to do it 15 minutes twice a day if possible. 5 minutes is better than none but the body does not relax in 5 minutes, when the body is tense mind will not calm down

    Happiness no problem it is my pleasure, Have you ever use guided meditation? I really recommend my favorite one Jon Kabat Zinn his audiobooks are awesome and a lot of guided meditation of his on youtube. His voice is calming me down so fast )

    Yep - Meditation is great for those of us feeling suicidal and homicidal. I fully recommend it. It's also great if your just in need of finding space.

    I've always had trouble falling asleep, but have now started to meditate myself to sleep, and it works!

    I absolutely LOVE meditation and the fact it really helps with anxiety. Like Dhalia mentioned I try and meditate for 15-20 minutes a day. I find that it makes me calmer, more focused, and problems don't seem as big.
