Meditation For Anxiety

@annedodrill44, It is difficult to imagine my life today without daily mindful meditation practice. It always amazes me that we want medication to work for hours. What about meditation? How long are the good effects supposed to last? A day? A week? A few hours?

Remembering that meditation gives our entire brain a rest, we can understand why it is better to meditate daily. While it is best to meditate at the same time and in the same place, finding a peaceful corner somewhere can work. And it is best when you have trained your brain to rest "on-demand" and you can meditate for a few minutes….anytime and anywhere.

Then we can call on our meditation practice to counteract our anxiety. Anxiety leads to pain which leads to more anxiety, etc. etc. etc. Mindful meditation will help us control the anxiety……and in doing so, help with the pain.

I hope you will make time to meditate. Please be free of suffering today. Chris

Chris, thank you for sharing your experience with meditation. It’s taking me a while to easily drop into the meditation zone. I hope I get to that point. My anxiety has been with me for so long — I’m really good at that!! I realize I need to exercise some patience here, but am confident that I’m doing something good for myself by meditating.
