How can you practice meditation?

2-   Straighten your spine, and have a good posture exactly like in the picture above.
3- Listen to a relax music or just practice silent meditation. If you would like to listen to a relax music and that’s what I prefer, here is a link of relaxation music:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Uj4yX9azbU
3-Close your eyes, and take deep breaths.
4-Take three deep breaths and focus on your breathing, while you breathe out slowly let any unwanted thoughts or feeling like worry, anxiety, stress and depression fade away.
5-when you feel that you’re distracted by some thoughts come into your mind, without any feeling of failure, just go back to your breath.
6-Now take another three deep breaths and while you exhale mentally countdown 3 to 1.
7-Now start visualization. Imagine you are in a beautiful place like a garden. Start to look around you at the beautiful scene, e.g. the trees and listen to the sound of birds on them. Take another deep breath and smile. Imagine a small river in front of you and put your hands in the river and feel the warm water of the river and smile. After that lie down on the grass and feel a sense of comfort and calm. Finally, take another deep breath and open your eyes. (Or you can visualize any image of any place that makes you relaxed e.g. the sea)
8- Practice this meditation again before you go to bed.

And if you don't know how to do meditation, here’s a sample of guided meditation I've found on Youtube. Download it on your IPod and put the headphone on and follow the instruction. Note: I don't own this guided meditation.


3-Positive affirmations

   If you are really thirsty to get rid of worry, anxiety stress and depression, and eager to change your behaviors and attitudes, use positive affirmations.  Positive affirmations are one of the greatest tools to reduce worry, anxiety stress and depression. Positive affirmations like positive instructions you give to your subconscious to defeat bad habits in it and replace them with positive thoughts. By using positive affirmations, you will notice a dramatic change in your thoughts, behaviors and attitudes and you will feel inner peace.
In order to get the best result of positive affirmations you have to follow the tips below:
1- Keep the positive affirmations in the present tense. For example, you can say to yourself: “Everyday I am getting better and better”, not “Everyday I will be better and better.” Because in the present tense, it means the change will be now, but in the future, it means the result will be in the future not now. 
2- Feel the meaning of each word.
3- Speak them slowly and clearly.
4- Repeat the positive affirmations several times.
5-Write down the positive affirmations and keep them in your pocket, post them on any place where you can read them most of the time (in the kitchen, in your bedroom, in the living room, on your desk, on the bathroom mirror, by the phone).
Here are some examples of positive affirmations:
-Everyday in every way I am getting better and better.
-All good things are coming to me today.
-I can successfully handle any challenge.
-I feel good physically, mentally and emotionally.
-I am always positive, truthful and grateful.
-I am always happy.
-I am calm and relaxed in every situation.


4-Mirror technique

 

 

 

Mirror technique is a powerful method to relieve your worry, stress, anxiety and depression. By standing in front of the mirror, repeating some positive statements, you definitely create a new picture of yourself and your thoughts, because your subconscious responds to your new messages in which it is going to bring these messages into reality. Within a few days, you will notice extraordinary results in your behaviors and attitudes. The sooner you use the mirror technique, the sooner you'll get better. You will notice that your confidence has grown and you have personal power that enables you to handle any obstacle in your life.

5- Gratitude

- Have you ever thought gratitude is the best antibiotic against worry, anxiety, stress and depression?  Many researches show the incredible impact of gratitude on those who are worried, anxious, stressed and depressed. They approve that practicing gratitude enables anyone to overcome all kinds of challenges in the daily life. As matter of fact, the feeling of being thankful increases the positive feeling and brings calm no matter what kind of difficulties are  in your life; because when you give thanks for people ,things ,events , or even for a little things in your life, you push the negative thoughts away and replace them with the positive ones. You will feel inner strength, and you will gradually notice the worry begins to fade away. Then you will feel a sense of calm and inner peace that you haven’t experienced before. Gratitude shifts your thoughts to focus only on the positive things, which in turn shines the happiness within you and make you smile whatever the circumstances are. Don’t underestimate gratitude because it’s the secret people rarely know about.

-When you go to your work, be grateful for the car that you have or to the taxi you are going to get in. During the work day, be grateful for the job you have, be grateful for the people you are working with. And when the break comes, be grateful for this time and the lunch you have. At the end of the day of working, be grateful for that time.
-When you go home, be grateful for having a home, be grateful for having a family, be grateful for having a pet like a cat or a dog.
- When you go to bed, write down at least five things for which you are feeling grateful for (It’s called gratitude journal).
