* Stress, Anxiety and Sleep improved

An young medical student attended three of my classes (3) over a period of two months. His mother asked me to help him, as she was worried about his anxiety and obesity. At the end of the third class, he made a self assessment of how he practiced and the change in his concerns.  Here is a brief report –

What modes did he practice and when?
Tip mode, segment mode, counting mode and staring mode at night to sleep,  Feeling mode in an emergency during the day and 911 mode when stressed (1). He practiced in the morning and when waiting,  bored and even when working.  He also practiced the loosening exercises from Yoga (gentle stretching movements) 3 times a week, in addition to his daily running (2).

How did he feel in mind and body?
He felt more focused, less stressed and felt rested. He had 8 hours of very good sleep.

What was the change in his concerns?
Stress reduced by 50%
Anxiety reduced by 30%
Sleep problem reduced by 95%

(1) Six modes of ‘Focusing on breathing’
(2) Loosening exercises from Yoga
(3) Seminars and classes
