According to the American Psychological Association, 41.6% of college students have anxiety and 36.4% have depression. As a college student that experiences forms of both anxiety and depression, I like to do various things to help me cope with those feelings. Reading, writing and listening to music help me with my anxiety and depression, but what helps me the most is meditating. Meditation helps relieve stress and there are distinct types of meditation that do so.

Several types of meditation are used for specific types of stress in your life. I do Loving-Kindness Meditation and Breath Awareness Meditation to help myself relax, the methods of which come from Medical News Today.

Loving-Kindness Meditation

This meditation can be done for as long as you need.

Breath Awareness Meditation

This meditation can be done for at least 15 minutes a day.

Health, a fitness, nutrition and health magazine, also recommends the following meditations.

Mindfulness Meditation for reduced depression and anxiety

Walking Meditation for the body and mind

According to Psychology Today, professionals say that meditation is so easy to learn and is one of the only things that helps relieve people of their anxiety and depression. When you want to relax or better your mental health, sit down comfortably, clear your mind and take some deep breaths.
