Anxiety and Avoidance | The Emotionally Sensitive Person

sheilabrownmhc:

Wilson and Dufrene suggest that mindfulness can help you consider worry and anxiety as lapses in mindfulness, as being out of touch with the present moment. Anxiety cannot exist when you are living in the present moment. They also suggest that you separate yourself from the stories you tell yourself about what might happen in the future. Sometimes we take the stories we tell ourselves literally, as being the truth of a situation. Recognizing that what you imagine might happen is just a story you are telling yourself can help you not get absorbed in the story as being reality.
