Mindful : April 2017
1Intention Your intention is what sets you on the mindful path to grad- ually transform your anxiety and find more ease, freedom, and peace. It also helps you to develop persistence in seeing yourself as whole, capable, and resourceful. 2Beginner’s Mind Meeting anxiety with curiosity can play an impor tant role in transforming your experience. When you’re willing to adopt another point of view, new possibilities arise, and this can help you challenge anx- ious thoughts and feelings. 3Patience Being patient supports per- severance and for titude when feelings of anxiety are chal- lenging. It offers a broader perspective, allowing you to see that moments of anxious- ness will pass. 4Nonjudgment In the midst of anxiety, it can be all too easy to experience judgment on top of already uncomfortable feelings. When you let go of evalua- tions, you reset your mind to a more mindful state, see more clearly, and you may even find that many sources of anxiety simply fade away. 5Nonstriving When you feel anxious, the first response is often to get out of the situation. But if you can pause and acknowledge whatever is coming up for you without needing to change it, you can know your reactions better and more clearly choose your response. You become less fearful of your anxiety, and develop trust in your ability to be with the uncomfortable sensations, thoughts, and emotions until they pass. 6Self-Compassion Meeting yourself with kind- ness and bringing this quality to your anxiety is like being your own best friend. And as your self-compassion grows, you will come to know and trust that you are there for yourself, and your anxiety will naturally decrease. 7Equanimity When you cultivate balance and equanimity, you fos- ter wisdom and provide a broader perspective with which you understand that all things change and that your experience is so much wider and richer than any temporary experience of anxiety.
