Temporal, spectral, and sample-to-sample fluctuations in coherence properties of qubits form an outstanding challenge for the development of upscaled fault-tolerant quantum computers. A ubiquitous source for these fluctuations in superconducting qubits is a set of atomic scale defects with a two-level structure. Here we propose a way to mitigate these fluctuations and stabilize the qubit performance. We show that frequency modulation of a qubit or, alternatively, of the two-level defects, leads to averaging of the qubit relaxation rate over a wide interval of frequencies.
