You calm your mind down with Meditation. It can be as basic as just breathing slowly and letting go. No matter how deep you choose to go in, you will always benefit from it and come out refreshed.
Whether you are new to meditation or have done it before, these are great, peaceful sessions. The Brahma Kumaries international site has these six:
The best way to go through these is to find somewhere quite where you are comfortable and at the right temperature. You can sit in any position you like, eyes open or closed. Try different ways and you will soon come to realise what works for you. And just listen to the meditation. If your mind wonders, that’s ok. Bring it back as soon as you are conscious that you have drifted.
For many of us, not taking care of our minds can be very detrimental. So it’s worth investing in your mind even for just a few minutes to a few hours a day. Out of 24 hours in the day, take a bit out for you. Even if you are just sitting in silence observing your breathing pattern. You will receive some amazing solace.
Anyone can meditate, from a child to a senior person. Kids benefit really well from it because they are not afraid to try it. They just let go and have a wonderful experience.
There are many CD’s you can buy if you struggle to get with how to meditate. Just go into any search engine and add “meditation CD” and go through the list. As mentioned before, Anne Jones has some great ones on her CD’s.

There is a part of you that is perfect and pure. It is untouched by the less than perfect characteristics you have acquired by living in a less than perfect world. It is filled with wisdom and so, is a constant source of wellbeing. It’s a total absence of conflict and negativity of any sort makes this part of you a still point – a deep enriching experience of silence. Make time to practice this inner place of silence. It will bring you untold benefit.
