Clear all

I'm feeling stressed out. Are there any nontheistic spiritual practices you think might help?

I was thinking of trying Vipassana meditation, but I'm open to any nontheistic suggestions.

Meditate, and think deeply about your life and the things going on in it.

I've not really heard of Vipassana meditation, but was going to suggest meditation anyway. Of any sort, I suppose. I meditate fairly often; its very calming.

Ummm, well, I have an idea.
Meditating is a good way to make stress go away for a while. Of course, it does take some focus...but instead of meditating on clearing your mind only, do this:
After you clear your mind, take yourself into a place of the beach, or a park. Hear all the sounds, feel the wind, sense what you would sense at such a place. By doing this, you will feel more refreshed when you open your eyes. I know I do. 🙂
It may sound hard, but it isn't really, just imagine a place you already know and love, and it should be easy!
Hope that helps. 🙂

Do some yoga. Maybe try some sattvic foods. I think that's how you spell that.

Can you swim, can you run, do you like food or alcohol? (Or both?)
Where do you get your stimulation?
I know that from personal experience, fitness, good food, good wine and good company relieve stress (oh yes, and helping people and asking for nil in return.)
Almost forgot - working hard.
