ELLE (Canada) - - Body -

If Toronto sud­denly seems more Zen, it’s thanks to the re­cent uptick of med­i­ta­tion and well­ness spa­ces like Mind­set Brain Gym (62 Cum­ber­land St.), Good Space (360 Duf­ferin St.) and Soul 7 (17 Yorkville Ave.). Out of town? Try al­ter­nate-nos­tril breath­ing, says Emily Thring, founder and di­rec­tor of The Quiet Com­pany (511 King St. W.). Hil­lary Clin­ton is a fan of the mind­ful­ness tech­nique and used it af­ter the last Amer­i­can elec­tion. Plug your left nos­tril and in­hale through your right nos­tril, then, hold­ing that breath, plug your right nos­tril and ex­hale through your left nos­tril. Re­peat for a few min­utes or un­til you achieve the chill per­spec­tive of Will Smith on In­sta­gram—which­ever comes first.
