Mind your Mind!

Advice, Lifestyle, Mental Health July 8, 2011

In rebuttal to my wonderful Cigar’s “Cure your Anxiety.”  If you really want to “cure” anxiety work on a skill called mindfulness.  Anxiety is basically a persistent worry about the future and how horrible it will be.  Mindfulness is a practice that keeps you tethered to the current moment.  Many people will argue, “But all of these things could happen, I’m just being realistic and prepared.”  Mindfulness doesn’t ask you to neglect planning for the future, but it requires that you plan for the future in the calm of the present moment.  There is a chance that you will get in a car accident in the future but not a large chance, worrying about it also won’t make it any less likely to happen.  So, stay in the current moment, after all, we reach the future every passing moment.  I will post future blogs about some specific mindfulness techniques.  Stay Posted!!!!!
