I have been doing some form of guided meditation/breathing exercises/muscle relaxation twice a day for months now. My counselor said that brains can change in time to be more relaxed with doing these things several times a day. I haven't noticed any difference at all. If anything I continue to get worse. I'm sleeping 3-4 hours a night even with anxiety meds. I'm seriously scared right now and wondering why things aren't improving at all for me. I'm an anxious, depressed mess! I basically struggle through every single day just doing what I need to, exhausted and depressed.
