From the South Florida Web site:
What do you do in a real estate market that is seeing sales plummet month after month with no end in sight? More South Florida brokers are turning to meditation to relieve the stress that goes along with a busted real estate bubble. “Sellers are anxious and they are making the brokers anxious,” said Mordy Levine, founder of Meditation for Wellbeing, a meditation training firm in Delray Beach, Fla. “It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel because the tunnel is so long,” he continued. “Meditation is a way to calm the mind and reduce stress brokers deal with on a daily basis.” Levine works with brokers, among others, to help them deal with the stress of the current real estate market. In addition to stress reduction, the supposed benefits of this ancient practice include peace of mind, enhanced concentration and creativity, and better physical health.
