Chronic stress can be brought on by stressors such as those relating to money problems, difficulties with school or work, and unhappy relationships. It brings on feelings of frustration, anger, nervousness, or hopelessness.
Amazingly, we don’t consider chronic stress as a factor when we experience the above symptoms. Most of the time we blame an illness such as colds, flu, even allergies as the cause.
More and more studies are finding that daily meditation practice is important for lowering stress and anxiety, decreasing blood pressure, improving sleep, and your overall health. Ambient sounds are a great tool to use while meditating to help you achieve a more relaxed state. Using ambient sounds like water can bring your mind down to a slower state similar to those which you experience while watching your favorite tv show when you are in that twilight between awake and sleep, and even a deep sleep state. Science is finding that listening to music also can help you relax even more and improve your stress and anxiety
There are so many ways to meditate and it doesn’t require you to spend a lot of time doing it. Just taking five minutes a day to stop and breathe goes a long way to helping reduce chronic stress. Studies also show that soft, soothing music is one of the best ways to reduce stress, lower your heart rate, blood pressure, and reduce your cortisol levels.
