How Mindfulness Can Help Anxiety: Shauna Shapiro, Tim Desmond and Rhonda Magee

Jun 28, 2020

Research has shown that mindfulness helps reduce anxiety and depression. Worrying about the future and ruminating about the past are generally unhelpful patterns, though we all do it, especially now when the future feels so uncertain. Mindfulness can help to counteract these anxiety-producing patterns and instead respond to stress with an awareness of what is happening in the present moment. In as little as a few minutes each day, mindfulness allows us to practice for more adaptive reactions to difficult situations.
