Dear Dr. Mimi – High-Strung

Dear Dr. Mimi:
I tend to be high-strung, especially at work, and am often told that I need to
“calm down.” A friend said that doing meditation can improve my abilities as
well as my mental health. Is that true?
—High-Strung

Dear High-Strung:
Meditation has been proven to help people calm down and get focused. In addition, three of the benefits include clarity, resilience and compassion. These are important workplace skills, and they are also great leadership skills. There are a variety of types of meditation. Try more than one and choose what works best for you. One simple technique to calm down is to
breathe in slowly through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth.
