According to mental health research, intense feelings of anxiety and stress is what causes a nervous breakdown. The nerves don’t actually break of course, but it’s a signal to shut down and reset. We have become out of balance.

How do you reset?

Close your eyes.

This limits the sensory input  and will immediately start to slow things down.

Take Deep Breaths.

Combined with a meditation exercise, taking deep breaths will lower the brain wave frequency to a synchronized, more focused level of mind.

Meditation, due to its positive stress relieving side effects, is being considered as part of a prescription for a growing number of ailments that are physical, mental, emotional or spiritually based. The reset button isn't just needed for excess. A balance needs to be reset due to a lack of something in our lives too.

Meditation can fill a spiritual void where there is a lack of purpose, meaning, peace and love. When you move your awareness from the physical body, calm your emotions and still your thoughts, what remains? The answer to that question has ancient philosophers and New Age gurus searching through words to label something there are no words for. You just have to try it for yourself.
