Practicing meditation and yoga Nidra regularly can help reduce anxiety, improve sleep quality, and enhance overall well-being.

Understanding the philosophical concepts of yoga, such as non-attachment and self-awareness, can also help improve one's mental and emotional well-being.
Kirtan, chanting, mantra - Kirtan, chanting, and mantra are practices that involve the repetition of sacred sounds, words, or phrases. These practices can help quiet the mind, reduce stress, and promote feelings of well-being and connectedness.
