Mindfulness Meditation
for Anxiety Relief

Meditation for anxiety relief isn't a new fad. Millions of people are becoming more aware of its benefits.

For many anxiety sufferers, worry, fear, and racing thoughts are unfortunately part of life.  Medication and therapy can be effective in relieving these symptoms. 

But there’s a downside.

Medications have adverse side effects, and therapy is time consuming and expensive. 

Mindfulness meditation, on the other hand, is an effective, all-natural, holistic approach to managing and eventually overcoming anxiety disorder without expensive therapy and unwanted side effects.

Why Should You Use Mindfulness
Meditation To Manage Your Anxiety? 

Countless meditation practices can help you overcome anxiety disorder, but none are more effective than mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness meditation is simply bringing all your focus and attention into the present moment. During this time you're encouraged to observe and accept thoughts and feelings without judgment.  

Regular meditation will actually help to rewire the brain and change the way it responds to stress. 

Mindfulness Meditation Is Easy

Many practice a lifetime to master the art of meditation.

But don't worry, you don't have to. 

Mindfulness meditation is easy to do, doesn't require much time or any special training.

Silicone Valley business owners use mindfulness meditation to avoid burnout and stay mentally sharp. The U.S. Marines use this anxiety busting technique to minimize the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Plus, you can turn any activity into a meditation session. 

Here's a quick example.

The next time you go for a walk, notice the way your weight shifts as you place one foot in front of the other.  Focus more on the journey, less on the destination.

You can practice with other activities like washing the dishes, eating lunch, or listening to music.

Honestly, it doesn't matter what you choose to do as long as you stay in the present moment.



Mindfulness Mini-Meditation Session

Set aside 10-20 minutes each day for this mini-meditation session.

Believe me, you'll be glad you did!

  1. Sit in a quiet space where you wouldn't be disturbed. 
  2. Concentrate on your physical body.  Notice the sensation of the chair, bed, carpet or whatever you're sitting/laying on.
  3. Try your best to focus on whatever thoughts come up.  It's fine if your mind wonders. Observe without judgment.
  4. Don't try to control or avoid certain thoughts and feelings, no matter how difficult.
  5. You did great! Pat yourself on the back for showing up and taking care of yourself and for taking control of your mental health.
