Practices To Handle Anxieties

  • Notice each time you feel rushed, anxious or overwhelmed. Try to develop an awareness of it throughout the day and catch it soon.

  • When you feel anxious, notice your mental habit of letting anxiety carry you off into a chain reaction of worry. Pause, relax with what you feel, and then trust that you can handle the uncertainty at hand.
  • When feeling overwhelmed, notice your mental habit of thinking of being able to do your obligations. Pause, relax with what you feel and tackle one task at a time, breathing and enjoying each.
