Get a prayer pillow

Whether you are praying for yourself or for others. To heal an illness or attain world peace. Praying – in the form you see fit – has been shown to alleviate stress levels and help maintain a positive outlook.

During prayer, heart rates stop racing, blood pressure goes down, and our breath becomes calmer and more regular.

Today, consider designating a single pillow as a marker to remind you to pray and/or meditate.

A pillow by your bedside or wherever you feel most comfortable can be used during prayer but also serve as a visual remembrance to take time for yourself and your breathing.
