Meditation experts can help you learn to quiet your mind and sink into a state of stress-free relaxation, but you don’t need to see one in person to learn the skills and get relief. Books, guided meditation recordings, and even online tutorials can help you become a Zen master. Meditation is a particularly great option because the benefits are many and the risks are none. And unlike some other alternative treatments, scientific studies have shown that meditation can diminish pain. How to find one: Many yoga studios offer guided meditation sessions, where an instructor will help you get settled in a comfortable position before leading the group in breathing exercises. On your own, try these simple meditation techniques.
