From the article: Finding Calmness in Action:

" Breathing deeply or simply observing the breath can be a very simple, but powerful practice.

When I remember, I respond to stress by turning to the appropriate techniques of yoga at hand. If possible, I try to take a few minutes to center myself (including breathing or stretching) and focus deeply at the point between the eyebrows with devotion.

I will also use prayer inwardly, to ask God for guidance and blessing for myself, or for others during difficult times. This never fails to uplift my consciousness in some way, to bring me peace or joy and relieve stress or suffering of some kind.
