In his first book, Calming Your Anxious Mind, psychiatrist and author Jeffrey Brantley showed readers how to use the principles of mindfulness to manage anxiety and panic and to rediscover the joy in living. Now, in this follow-up book, he and coauthor Wendy Millstine present a series of daily meditations readers can use to overcoming fear, anxiety, and panic. These easy-to-learn-and-practice techniques can ease anyone into a regular, beneficial mindfulness practice. The book also includes visualizations, affirmations, and activities readers can use to deal with anxiety in daily life. Drawn from the clinical practice of mindfulness-based stress reduction, or MBSR, this method has been successfully learned by thousands of people for more than two decades. Readers will use these meditations to become more present to the experiences of their own lives. They will develop vital skills for calming and relaxing the mind and body and for strengthening present-moment awareness. By practicing these techniques, readers will discover their own inner core of stability, peace, and presence.
