Mindfulness & Anxiety
August 2016

Everyone experiences anxiety, worry and fear during the course of life. Life is challenging. Stuff happens. It is a very rare person who can sail through all of life's happenings without feeling some discomfort. It is part of the human experience. 

The practice of Mindfulness can help us to move through and dissolve troubling mental and emotional states, including anxiety and fear.  

The article below, "10 Mindful Attitudes that Decrease Anxiety" is from Mindful.org and was adapted from the book, A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook for Anxiety, by Bob Stahl PhD. 

I'm sharing it with you to support you in embracing a healthy, empowering approach to meeting and working with these common emotional experiences. Everything can be an opportunity for healing and transformation.

10 Mindful Attitudes that Decrease Anxiety

Mindfulness is, in short, the practice of being aware of what's happening or what you're experiencing in the present moment. It's being here and now without judgment. This is a capacity that all human beings possess. Whenever you bring awareness to what you're directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you're being mindful.

Although more research is needed to illuminate the mechanisms at work, it's clear that mindfulness allows us to interrupt automatic, reflexive fight, flight, or freeze reactions-reactions that can lead to anxiety, fear, foreboding, and worry.

By bringing mindfulness to our actual experience in the moment, we can increase the likelihood of exerting more conscious control over our behaviors and attitudes. In so doing we learn to work with our intention, wise effort, will, discipline, and capacity to be kind to ourselves. These are all resources that can be harnessed and cultivated.
