At Children’s National Hospital, we are committed to helping those who are stressed, anxious and just overwhelmed. Our hospital-wide Mindful Mentors program has created a library of short exercises to decrease stress. These short techniques will help you to calm your mind and body and find your focus again.

We encourage you to find two minutes in your day to recharge and take a moment for yourself. You can also easily do any of these exercises while sitting, standing or on the move – with a friend, your child or alone.
