Fear can be a powerful and detrimental force that stops us from proceeding with certain tasks in our life. These tasks are sometimes necessary and we dread doing them, but at other times the block is simply due to the fear of failure. Practicing mindfulness can help in situations like these. We acknowledge our feelings and accept them as they are, focusing on current moment in time. The point of this practice is also to relinquish to urge to be judgmental towards ourselves.
- If you feel anxiety about undergoing medical procedures, mindfulness techniques can help.
- Practicing deep breathing can help you master the ability to remain calm under pressure.
- To deal with work anxiety, try taking a single raisin and exploring its look, texture and taste.
“Mindfulness is all the rage for multiple reasons. This practice helps you halt future fears and ruminations about an immutable past and live in the present moment. That isn’t the only benefit you can reap, however.”
