Meditation is a way of deeply relaxing the mind and body whilst remaining awake and alert from moment to moment. Meditation may help deeply relax the mind, which in turn may help with minimising anxiety and stress.
How can meditation help?
Regular meditation can help you feel calmer and clearer about things, particularly difficult to achieve when your mind is constantly ‘switched on’, perhaps with worries about your diagnosis. Meditation can help reduce feelings of fear, pain, anxiety and depression. Regular meditation practice can help people feel more in control of themselves and their lives.
