The best way to begin calming your mind is by getting rid of outside distractions. You can do this by simply closing your eyes, by having a tidy environment, turning off screens, and going somewhere quiet are all extra ways to avoid getting thrown off by the busy world around you.

Nature is known to have a calming effect on the brain, so if you’re not one for sitting still try going for a mindful walk instead. A walk in nature helps to ground you in the present, and is a handy reminder that most things are out of your control.

What you hear can be just as distracting as what you see! Replace loud music with a meditation or nature soundscape to quieten your mind.
