I’m always amazed at all of the wonderful benefits that can be found from mindfulness exercises and a meditation practice. I know meditation works because I have been benefitting from my practice for years. Yet sometimes I still have a hard time convincing others to try it.
If you are one of those who needs an extra little “push,” consider this: The Washington Post reported that a study published in the Journal of American Medical Association’s “Psychiatry” revealed that people who received eight weeks of mindfulness-based interventions experienced a decrease in anxiety that matched those who were prescribed a common anti-anxiety medication.
Now let me be clear: any decision to start or stop any medication needs to be discussed with your physician. But for those who struggle with anxiety and don’t want to immediately begin taking medication, mindfulness may be a good place to start. You might even consider the Unwinding Anxiety app.
In my next post, I will share with you a mindfulness technique that served me well during the onset of the pandemic in March 2020.
