During this stressful time of uncertainty, moments of peace can be hard to come by. While self-care and stress relief look different for everyone, meditation is a universal coping mechanism that can be done anytime, anywhere. So Health partnered with MNDFL, a New York City-based meditation studio, to bring Instagram followers a guided meditation for coping with coronavirus pandemic-related anxiety.
On March 27, Adreanna Limbach, a MNDFL teacher, led Health Instagram followers through the 20-minute meditation. (You can watch the entire session in the video above!) Limbach starts by encouraging viewers to find a comfortable place to sit, like a cozy couch, and asks them to place their feet on the floor so they feel grounded. She asks everyone to gently close their eyes, then begins the session by taking a few deep breaths.
