Although the article I’m about to link to is seems more philosophical in nature vs. practical, I believe it is very valuable to anyone who suffers from anxiety. Many of the new treatment modalities connected to overcoming chronic anxiety do utilize what is known as “mindfulness,” which is very much an attitude and mindset of “being in the now.”
From experience, and I’m sure most or all of you would agree, much of the anxiety torment we feel is generated as soon as we begin entertaining (automatically!) worrisome thoughts: “What if ___?… and all sorts of concerns whirling in our minds.
This article entitled THE ORIGIN OF FEAR by Eckhart Tolle (whose “awakening” resulted in the midst of a super high anxiety episode!) is short and worth contemplating.
