Urgent Self-Care – Relieving Anxiety
With so much uncertainty and pressure in the world, it’s only normal to feel nervous about what might come next. But at the same time, you don’t want to get overwhelmed by anxiety or let stress completely derail your day.
Our Relieving Anxiety practices are intended to help you find a moment of peace — wherever you are. Through a combination of mindfulness meditations, visualizations, and perspective shifts, you can quickly achieve a more relaxed state of mind that will allow you to approach difficult situations with a renewed sense of clarity.
