Shilpa, who is famous for her workout and yoga videos, shared a deep breathing meditation to fight stress and stay calm. "This is an exercise I do religiously when I want to center myself," she said.
In a series of tweets, the 45-year-old actress also explained the steps to do the exercise correctly.
"Inhale and take a deep breath in, filled with positive thoughts and exhale all the negative thoughts/emotions into the universe as love and light. This meditation helps you focus on the things that need attention, centers and gives you the ammunition to tackle with the stress in your daily grind," she wrote.
"Do this for a few minutes but unhindered, connect with the universe; and align your mind, body, and soul to prepare yourself for the day ahead. Start with just five minutes of deep breathing today. Tag a friend who needs to keep calm today," Shilpa further suggested.
