Practicing relaxation techniques can help calm our

pausing to breathe slowly and deeply. Try to continue with easy breathing as you

move through your day.

such as walking or listening to music.

nature – the song of the birds, the whisper of leaves, the ripple of waters upon
a sandy shore, the wail of wind or sea.” –
