Not only is anxiety painful enough, but we often get hit with a second round of self-critical thoughts.
If your judgments make you more anxious, see if you can interrupt your self-critic by dropping into your heart and saying, “May I learn to be kinder to myself.”
In moments of moderate to intense anxiety, the 3×3 practice can come in handy.
Drop into 3 of your senses and name 3 things that you notice about them: the things you’re seeing, smelling, tasting, feeling, or hearing. This can help interrupt the automatic catastrophic think...
If your anxiety isn’t severe, you can actually channel that energy into something productive.
For example, if you’re nervously waiting to hear some news, get active—go for a walk, clean, organize, or garden instead.
