How to Practice Mindfulness & Reduce Anxeity

1. Stay in the present moment.

There is no rule that says you have to be doing a million things at once. No where in the nonexistent life handbook is there a statement that tells you to worry about everything that has yet to happen.

2. Don’t analyze the situation.

Once you begin to analyze the situation, you’re creating an imaginary outcome.

3. Accept that there is only so much that can be done.

You can’t control everything, and you can’t go back in time and change anything. These are not bad things.

4. Trust in something bigger than yourself.

Trusting in something bigger than you let’s you focus on your tasks. You don’t have to worry about the how. You don’t have to get overwhelmed with the details.

5. Find the beauty in every moment, even the horrible ones.

Look for the lesson. There is beauty in horrible situations if you look at it objectively and you always have the option of removing yourself from my situation or person that drains your energy and brings you down – it’s liberating!

Happiness will come when you bring happiness to others.

A very good practice for preventing anger in the first place is to become masterful at listening.

Practice leaving things be. Let others be themselves—who are we to judge?—and let us concentrate on improving our own minds and our own lives instead.
