Winding down each day

By: Aileen Baxter

Try this 5–10-minute exercise towards the end of each day as a way to let go of any stress. Sitting in a chair, relax and focus on your breath, noticing as you breathe in, and breathe out.  Try and let go of all the thoughts from the day, focus on your breathing and how you feel. Try and imagine melting into your surroundings.  It might not work at first, just keep focusing on your breathing and letting go of any stress from the day.
