3. Meditate to Release Stress
While all parts of the daily routine are important, the Pranayama & meditation are the most effective way to reduce stress.

4. Calm Anxiety with Therapeutic Aromas
Therapeutic aromas work very well in relieving stress and have a proven calming effect. Flowers in the home also create a natural soothing aroma.

what exactly is Gandharva Veda music?

Dr.Aparna S. Pattewar said...

Gandharva music is the expression of the eternal music of Nature. It is the music that is in alliance with Natural Law. If you can hear the music of Nature as the sun rises, as it shines in the fullness of the midday, as the soft shadows of late afternoon spread across the land, if you can hear the sun set, the deep silence of midnight, the stillness of early morning and the first awakening of the dawn, these are the melodies and rhythms of gandharva music. They match perfectly with the cycles of Nature and the changing rhythms of Nature that govern the evolution of all levels of creation, from the minute to the ever-expanding universe.
