Dr. Harry Strothers recommends sitting in private for meditation or breathing exercises when you are feeling stressed. According to him, applying the so-called 4-7-8 breathing technique can really help.

For this exercise, you must close your mouth and breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds. Hold your breath for 7 seconds and exhale for 8 seconds. He encourages people to repeat it at least three times or until they feel relaxed.

Strothers also recommends taking breaks when needed. He says we shouldn't be afraid to accept what our minds and bodies need the most.

" If you work in an office, you can make sure you stay up every hour at least. Take breaks to watch the news or scan social media, you can make sure you get information from reliable sources, you can give yourself 30 minutes to do the things you love. "
