I remember a time when I was swamped with work deadlines, family responsibilities, and I felt like I was spiraling. Stress and anxiety were taking over.

If left unchecked, anxiety can lead to sleepless nights, lack of focus, even panic attacks. It’s a problem that needs addressing.

According to the American Psychological Association, 75% of adults reported experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the past month and nearly half reported that their stress has increased in the past year.

Chronic stress can affect your brain, suppress your thyroid, cause blood sugar imbalances, decrease bone density and muscle tissue, raise blood pressure, and reduce your immunity and inflammatory responses in the body. As well, it can increase abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body.

Additionally, nearly half reported that their stress has increased in the past year. This increase in stress levels over time can lead to serious health problems such as mental illness, cardiovascular disease, and obesity.

To put things into perspective, stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and feelings, and your behavior. Being able to recognize common stress symptoms can help you manage them. Stress that’s left unchecked can contribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

So, here are the steps for ‘Meditation for Anxiety and Panic’:

Step 1: Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed.

This could be any part of your home where you feel comfortable and can get some privacy. You could even consider creating a dedicated meditation space filled with items that bring you peace—maybe a plant, some calming artwork, or a favorite cushion. If it’s hard to find a quiet place, consider using noise-canceling headphones or playing soft, calming music or nature sounds.

Step 2: Sit comfortably and close your eyes.

It’s important to sit in a way that allows you to relax but doesn’t make you so comfortable that you fall asleep. You can sit on a chair, a meditation cushion, or even on your bed, provided you keep your back straight. Closing your eyes helps to minimize visual distractions and allows you to focus inward.

Step 3: Focus on your breath. Breathe slowly and deeply.

Pay attention to the sensation of your breath as it enters and leaves your nostrils, or the rise and fall of your belly as you breathe. Try to slow your breathing down and make your breaths as deep as you can, filling your lungs completely and then gently exhaling all the air out. This type of controlled breathing not only keeps your mind focused but also has a calming effect on your nervous system.

Step 4: If your mind wanders, gently bring it back to your breath.

This is a key part of meditation and can be a bit challenging, especially for beginners. When you notice your mind wandering off into thoughts, worries, or daydreams, don’t judge yourself or get frustrated. Just gently guide your attention back to your breath. Remember, the goal is not to empty your mind of thoughts but to learn not to get swept up in them.

Step 5: Practice this for 10 minutes every day.

Consistency is more important than duration when it comes to meditation. It’s better to meditate for 10 minutes every day than for an hour once a week. Over time, as your concentration improves, you can gradually increase the duration of your sessions. Remember, this is your journey towards greater peace and self-awareness. Take it at your own pace.

Each step is crucial as it helps you relax, focus, and ultimately control your anxiety.

When you put this into practice, you’ll notice a decrease in your stress levels, an increase in your focus, and a sense of calm that will help you manage your busy life.

So, to recap, think of this meditation practice as your personal stress-busting shield. It’s a shield you craft yourself, through daily practice, to deflect the chaos around you.
