  • Meditation: Meditation techniques like mindfulness cultivate a deeper awareness of your body and sensations.This allows you to observe challenges without judgment and develop a positive relationship with your health.
  • Mindfulness: Cultivating mindfulness throughout your day helps you identify and address stress triggers. This promotes a sense of self-control and empowers you to manage your health more effectively.
