This week’s feature, “You, Improved,” gathers some excellent pointers from various life-improvement experts. Some of my favorite:

Brad Braden, administrative director at Kadampa Meditation Center

• “Before going into a stressful meeting, take a couple of minutes to breathe and ground yourself. ‘If we can back away for a moment,’ he says, ‘it helps you to know what it feels like to be calm’ so that you can return to that feeling at times when you may be provoked.”

Katja Lauterstein, marketing coordinator and yoga instructor at High Desert Yoga

• “If you decide to attend meditation or yoga classes, it’s important to find a teacher you resonate with. So when you start going, shop around until you find someone who makes you feel absolutely comfortable.”

Dr. Heidi Murphy, communication studies instructor at Central New Mexico Community College

• On defensiveness: “She says it’s hard to ‘own up to something we know we can do better.’ Instead of talking about it, we ‘push it away’ and blame it on others.

Miriam Ortiz y Pino, certified professional organizer and simplicity expert, owner of More Than Organized

• “Move disorganized items into a clutter-free space. Sort them out there, then put them back. Oftentimes you’ll think more clearly in a clean area.”
