 Mind/Body Medicine

Progressive muscle relaxation, autogenic training, relaxation response, transcendental meditation and oriental exercise techniques such as tai chi and qigong are all useful in controlling anxiety and stress.

Meditate or pray daily, preferably in the morning before or after breakfast.

Practice surrendering the outcome of events to the great spirit, however you perceive him/her/it.

Excessive need to control events actually increases anxiety and eventually leads to depression.

It's important to pray or meditate before the workday actually begins to reduce the excess and destructive need to control all events.
