Meditation is something that any one of you out there could practice at any stressful time in your lives and it will really help matters not seem so severe. There are many different books on the internet where you could learn more about meditation and start practicing it each day. This is important for you to do in order for you to feel better about your situation in life.
Set aside the necessary time. If you think you can't find the time, think again. There are almost certainly times in your day when you can find 20 minutes or so. Cut out watching the news for starters - that will have the beneficial effect of keeping you away from negative influences as well. Find a comfortable chair if you're going to listen to your guided relaxation whilst sitting down. Or find a bed to lie down on if that's the position you'd prefer.
Do some sort of meditation every day for a couple weeks and just see how much better you feel about things. It is going to really surprise you a lot.
