Simple deep breathing and some relaxing soft instrumental music. You can use this for a few minutes in the reclining position (floor or bed), or you can use this technique while you are studying or multi-tasking other necessary chores.

This helps provide a relaxing environment. People used to laugh at 'elevator music', yet is was designed to keep people calm of their fears when riding an elevator.

These days when we call 'Customer Service' for most anything, we get the most aggravating music possible to further jitter our nerves while we wait seemingly FOREVER for a live person to talk to. I have the suspicion that they hope we will hang up long before anyone human actually gets to us... leaving us as nervous wrecks.

Customer Service reps and customer music psychology these days doesn't do much for 'calm' environments towards solving our problems and answering questions in the process.
