The experience of anxiety is daunting for many. It is easy to get overwhelmed with thoughts of one thing and another together with all kinds of physical symptoms that can create unrest. To start to work with anxiety with mindfulness requires courage and a conviction to pay attention to the symptoms in a way that will seem uncomfortable at first.
One of my favourite quotes about this is from Jon Kabat-Zinn in his book “Full Catastrophe Living”. He says:
“When you move in close to your fears and observe them as they surface in the form of thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensation, you will be in a much better position to recognize them for what they are and know how to respond to them appropriately.”
Come out this Saturday, February 8 for a workshop on “Calming Your Anxious Mind with Mindfulness” and discover how you can “move in close” to your experience and start to work with it an a way that helps you to get control of the challenging experience of anxiety.
