Anxiety can often rob you of precious moments. Instead of being able to relax or enjoy the fruits of your labor, anxiety can take all that away: it gives you more things to worry about, points out things that didn’t work out as perfectly, or simply moves on to the next unfulfilled task, without letting you rest.
Practicing mindfulness for anxiety is a great way to help manage the disorder. It will allow you to be in the present moment helping you separate the anxiety from your reality. With mindfulness, you too will be able to enjoy precious moments without added stress. If you suffer from mild to moderate anxiety, consider practicing mindfulness so you can get back to what matters most.
The Ugly Face Of Anxiety
Anxiety is the voice of your worries cranked up to 11. It’s the part of your brain that is always looking for something you missed. The part that makes you check the front door and oven 5 times even though you already did, but you can’t trust yourself to remember.
On top of other ways to manage an anxiety disorder, mindfulness will bring you back to the moment. It will make you face what you’re really feeling, and what is triggering the anxiety.
Often, anxiety is fueled not by what has already happened, but by what you’re afraid may happen. Practicing mindfulness will help you recognize that, and help you face the real reasons why you’re anxious. Once you’re able to do that, anxiety will no longer have power over you.
