Three Mindfulness Basics for Anxiety and Depression
Welcome back to another episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit Podcast.
Do you ever feel like you have to go back to basics? Maybe you feel overwhelmed with all the “tools” and strategies you need to practice to manage your anxiety, obsessions, compulsions, and emotions. Maybe you are feeling like you need to simplify your mental health practices so that you only have a few things to manage instead of many.
If you are feeling this way, you are not alone. I recently realized that I had to return back to some mindfulness basics and review the tools that helped me many years ago. In today’s episode of Your Anxiety Toolkit, I talked about the 3 mindfulness basics for anxiety and depression that you must return to when you are struggling with anxiety, stress, life events, depression, and grief.
In this episode, we talk about how we sometimes refuse to go back to the basics because we are afraid it means we are “going backward.” We dispel this myth and address how these 3 mindfulness basics for anxiety and depression can recharge our mental health plan and practice.
If you'd like to learn more about mindfulness skills that I teach my face-to-face clients who struggle with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), we have an online course available on CBTschool.com called Mindfulness School for OCD. Click HERE to learn more and sign up.
