(Zoey Sky) The fast-paced nature of life can wear you down, and stress caused by work and other matters can negatively impact your physical and mental health. However, according to a recent study, taking 15 minutes of “me” time daily can help manage your stress and anxiety.
Spearheaded by the University of Rochester, the study involved four different experiments. The researchers analyzed the data after a group of at least 350 people were asked to spend some time alone. Based on data from the experiments, the exercise can help individuals feel a sense of calm and peacefulness, regardless if the 15 minutes were spent meditating or reading a book.
