Stress ultimate damages your health. Tranquilizers, opioids, nicotine, alcohol, antidepressants, antipsychotics have all been used and found wanting. Prayer for me is best. Meditation, quiet time are beneficial and have been used to replace all of the above

Meditation has been proven in the past to bring positive results. For those who don't believe in a god or God or gods, it is a very helpful way to calm yourself and control your breathing. Of course, those who observe a god or God or gods, it helps them too. But for the non-believers, it's good to just stop, relax and be mindful for a small amount of time each day.

Margaret Wales, Start every MORNING for 5 minutes and gradually increase to a maximum of 30 minutes in about 6 months time, and feel the change and difference it brings in enjoying a healthy lifestyle and be free from all your problems and worries. THANKS

Meditation works wonders, though i don't meditate as detailed in your ways it helps, being a MUSLIM i pray 5 times a day, maximum time for the longest PRAYERS in the afternoon and night time is 15 to 20 minutes, totally if all are combined it comes to approximately 45minutes, OFCOURSE there is no big deal in PRAYERS TO GOD ALMIGHTY FOR 45 MINUTES IN A 24 HOUR DAY, I LOVE PRAYING WHICH IS AS GOOD AS SAYING MEDITATING, AND IT REALLY IMPROVED MY HEALTH AND LIFESTYLE, THANKS.

Yes agree with all above and it also gives you energy when you are tired. Twice a day for 20 minutes is best.
