Calm down with mind-body exercises

Exercises that help relax your mind and body may offer a number of physical and emotional benefits. An example is controlled breathing exercises that can help you calm down.

The Cleveland Clinic mentions these possible benefits of mind-body exercises:

  • A reduction in anxiety and better control of pain.
  • Improved sleep.
  • Reduced need for pain medications after surgery.
  • Fewer post-surgical complications, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.
  • A stronger immune system.
  • Improved feeling of well-being and a greater sense of control.
