Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

I have a thing called an 'anxiety box' it's what I go to if I have severe anxiety. it contains a journal, some coloring books and coloring utensils, some books, CD's and movies that I like, some tea, a stress ball, some playdough to keep my hands busy, some of my favorite perfumes to smell, some essential oils to calm me down and much more! and great idea for anyone who has anxiety.

Give yourself the same love you give your friends and family when they are in need, hold your own hand, self soothe and give yourself a break. We are all human.

When I'm walking outside, I like to make a point of not looking down. In addition to that, noticing and sending appreciation for the things around me (even something as silly as the color of leaves on a tree) makes me feel more connected and grounded.

My "coffee date with God" is a new habit I'm trying to cultivate and it really helps me.

When I feel like I can't do something I always try to think of this: I'm this tiny human being compared to the whole universe. Life is so much bigger than me and my daily problems. Life is also a gift given to me for unknown reason. What I know though is that I'll try to enjoy it till my last breath.

Noticing when my shoulders are tense and allowing them to soften

I try to be mindful whenever I can by just staying present in that experience or task. For example, yesterday, when I was washing a large sinkful of dishes, I found myself planning ahead: "When I'm done this, I need to...", etc. So I just took a beat & brought myself back to the act of washing the dishes. It doesn't always work, but it does keep my stress at bay.

I catch my thoughts as they become obsessive and bring myself back to the present. It's a work in progress though, I'm changing decades of bad mental habits!

If you actually think about it, anxiety is really about mind over body type of situation. In order to gain control of your anxiety, you need to pick out your thoughts just like how you pick out your clothes everyday. You can gain this control with practice ☝🏻

When I feel the anxiety is coming I welcome it and let it have my attention for a moment instead of pushing it away. It actually helps.

I write in a paper the things I feel. Then I write why do I feel it. Then I find the problem. Then I write what to solve it. Then, I solve it.

I just went out on my balcony to smoke and meditate. I know smoking is bad, but it helps me relax as well as meditation. I meditated for 25 minutes breathing in the cold fresh air while occasionally opening my eyes and staring at the midnight sky. I feel so much more relaxed. My mind feels free of the constant anxiety. I feel peaceful like I've found my inner self. This feeling is so calm, relaxing, and I feel great right now. πŸ’œ

Listening to music can help you escape any kind of negative situation. If you ever feel sad, put on a happy song and let it lift your spirits high. If not, then put on a sad song. One in which tells a story and relates to your current situation. Music is your friend, it will speak for you when you cannot and remind you that you are not alone.

learning that I feel my anxiety in my chest and throat. throat first, and when it gets really bad, it diffuses out into my chest. that's helped me keep it monitored

Currently I am sitting outside. Noticing everything around me. Sounds. Smells. Wind. It smells like rain. It's slightly chilly. I guess where I'm going with this is that you should put your phone down for a little bit. Breathe. And really pay attention to every thing going on around you right this second. Enjoy this moment.
