Meditation For Anxiety

I used to meditate successfully for years to help with anxiety/ocd.. I agree, it can change your life. I remember once describing it to other ppl like I felt like I was always on vacation.. that feeling you get right before you have your breakfast the morning of your vacation flight to Jamaica. Lol.. meditation for me slowed things down.. I felt as thought I could see things coming at me in slow motion and had the time to react appropriately. I miss that feeling. If I sit and meditate now, after a few days I get irritable and short fused.. it’s weird.. tried 2-3 times and this always happens.. something needs to come out I guess.. my favourite was the bodyscan.. for 30mins.. loved it..

@cp6401 That is an interesting observation about your meditation practice. I am curious what prompted you to stop meditating, and have you thought about trying another meditation technique? This time of year, especially, it is beneficial to have a measure of control in your responses to stressors!
