Meditation. Eastern philosophers have long touted its great benefits. Westerners attempt it with varying levels of success.
According to Wikipedia, meditation is “any form of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit.”
There’s a lot to be said of ridding the mind of thoughts in order to bring about inner peace and a renewed connection to your sense of self. Not to mention it also goes a long way to managing stress.
