The best meditation for anxiety is one which fills you with peace and serenity. Anxiety is often nothing else than a sense of future fear or fear of the unknown.
Become Mindful of the Present Moment
One of the best ways to beat anxiety is to become mindful and conscious of the present moment. You need to become consciously aware of your personal power, which really never leaves you. If you are not aware of the power within, you might have just forgotten momentarily about it.
If you have a pair of headphones near, put them on and try this little meditation while you watch, read and listen to the music. If the text is obscured by some ads, click them away.
Meditation For Anxiety in Nature
Breathe in the beauty of the scenery, let the sounds of the running water trickle through your whole body and become aware of the stillness within yourself.
When I recorded this video, I never thought I would use it for this meditation for anxiety video. That day I was out with my family, to reconnect with nature. Before that moment I was feeling really down, afraid, angry and aggressive. All at the same time. As we walked deeper into this beautiful valley I became really aware of the sheer beauty and energy surrounding me.
What you need to do
This is what you need to do as well – go out into the nature and fill yourself up to the rim with life and energy which nature so readily shares with us. Become aware of what is surrounding you and consciously choose to look at the world in search to see the good. The reason this meditation for anxiety video is so powerful when listening with headphones is because the musical peace includes Hemi-Sync sounds which naturally help people to let go of anxiety and stress.
This specific song is from the CD called TIMELESS by the talented Spanish composer Pablo Peláez.
You can also pick some other type of music from the long list of Meditation Music Samples.
More Help with Meditation for Anxiety
When anxiety creeps up I recommend you to take following steps:
- Stop a minute and become mindful of what you feel anxious about and why. Often the simple identification of the problem makes anxiety diminish.
- Talk with a good friend about the problem. Twist it and turn it until you have seen the problem from different angles. If you reach a point where the problem does not seem so threatening or you can even laugh about, you have come a long way.
- Turn your awareness to the positive in the situation.
- Attend a course for meditation, relaxation or stress relief. First, the instructor will want to help you and second, you will meet people who are going through similar problems as you are.
- Get professional help. If you have no one to talk to, book a time with a counselor or psychologist. These people have made it their profession to help people in need.
- And, last but not least, find an exercise you like doing: Walking, running, swimming, ice skating, Zumba, aerobics, team sports, yoga, Pilates. Any sport that you like doing is a good sport for you.
Do something at least five times per week. Exercise helps you produce happy hormones in your brain.
