PRACTICING MINDFULNESS WITH ANXIETY

1 – PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY:


Notice the sensations in your body. Scan each part and see if you can connect to it. For example, do you notice the tension in your face, if so try to consciously relax your muscles and feel the difference.

2- PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FEELINGS:


Start by classifying the tone of your feelings such as pleasant, unpleasant, neutral, intense, etc. Doing that can help you distinguish from the different types of anxiety you might experience. For example, anxiety can be pleasant as when working under pressure or unpleasant as in generalized anxiety disorder.

3- PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR THOUGHTS:


Paying attention to your thoughts can help you see how complicit they are in creating anxiety. Notice how they can add fuel to fire by raising your anxiety. Cultivate the habit of separating your reality from your thoughts by reminding yourself that they don’t affect reality. They are just the product of your active mind.
