Media channels are replete with stressful content, causing many people to live in fear and anxiety. While it’s true that there are urgent issues that the world is currently facing, allowing stress, fear, and anxiety to dominate our lives will not bring any benefit to our lives. In fact, these may even prevent us from planning and preparing properly, and from enjoying the moments that deserve to be cherished.
Don’t rehearse tragedies
Many people live in fear of a future that has not happened yet. Most times, we realize after the fact that the scenario we stressed about was much worse than what actually happened. The habit of worrying is truly tiring; it may even make us feel physically or mentally unwell. Aside from this, we also often forget the fact that we are equipped to cope with challenges and that we have proven this many times in the past!
Sit in silence, breathe, and enjoy each moment because the present is the only time we truly have. It’s nice to make it a habit to simply focus on the now and the blessings of every moment. Mindfulness can help us do this. This practice will guide our brain to come back to the present rather than dwell on worries for the future. Here, we become detached observers asking ourselves: “Hold on, why am I so stressed out? What is at the root of this?”
Find the practice that’s right for you
When we say mindfulness practice, we refer to several specific forms that include mindfulness meditation, breathing techniques, body scans, thought observation, progressive muscle relaxation, and so on. One can find the practice that is most fitting and do it regularly for the best results.
