Transforming Anxiety Into Tranquility
There’s no doubt about it: many of us lead hectic, stressful lives. We can go days without feeling like we even have a moment to pause and decompress. Between the demands of family, work, and the long list of responsibilities that come along with being human in the modern world, we sometimes feel as though we’re being pulled in a dozen different directions all at once.
On the one hand, engaging in mindfulness exercises and practicing mindfulness meditation can do a lot to relieve these sorts of feelings. However, it’s not always as simple as just sitting down, practicing meditation, and suddenly feeling relief. In fact, attempting to “be mindful” can sometimes have the opposite effect on us. Before we know it, we’re feeling worse instead of better.
