Daily Meditations for Calming Your Anxious Mind
Trying to control your anxious thoughts can backfire, making them more prevalent, not less. The best way to calm these common feelings of many is by attuning yourself to your thoughts in a nonjudgmental, attentive manner, acknowledging your anxieties but choosing to act rather than react.
Daily Meditations for Calming Your Anxious Mind is a collection of more than sixty-four daily mindfulness-based meditations to help you engage with the present moment, manage stress and anxiety, and rediscover the joy in living. Each meditation contains an easy-to-learn visualization exercise, affirmation, or activity, with meditations grouped into four sections: relaxing and feeling safe, embracing joys and fears, befriending your anxious mind and body, and connecting to the web of life.
These authors offer a wealth of daily mindfulness meditations you can use every day to manage chronic anxiety, restore calm, and feel at peace.
