Q:

Which meditation cure anxiety?

Hello everyone,

I have been struggling with anxiety for a while now and I'm looking for ways to manage it. I have tried various methods such as therapy and medication, but I'm looking for a more natural route. I have heard that meditation can be helpful for anxiety, but I'm not sure which type of meditation specifically would be best. Can anyone recommend a particular type of meditation that has helped them with their anxiety? I would greatly appreciate any advice or personal experiences shared. Thank you in advance!

Hi there,

I have also struggled with anxiety and have found that loving-kindness meditation (also known as metta meditation) has been helpful for me. This type of meditation involves focusing on sending love, kindness, and compassion to yourself and others.

During loving-kindness meditation, I start by focusing on myself and repeating phrases like "may I be happy," "may I be safe and healthy," and "may I be free from suffering." Then, I move on to family, friends, and eventually to all beings. It can be a bit challenging at first, but it has helped me to reduce my anxiety levels and cultivate positive feelings towards myself and others.

I would also recommend trying walking meditation or yoga, as they can also be calming and meditative practices that help reduce anxiety.

I hope this helps!

Hello everyone,

As someone who has dealt with anxiety for years, I have found that breath awareness meditation has been a great tool for managing my symptoms. This type of meditation involves focusing your attention on your breath and observing the natural rhythm of your breathing.

When I start to feel anxious, I take deep breaths and try to slow down my breathing. Then, I close my eyes and focus on the sensation of the breath moving in and out of my body. If my mind wanders, which it often does, I simply bring it back to my breath without judgment. This practice has helped me to become more aware of my thoughts and emotions and has given me more control over my anxiety.

I would also recommend trying group meditation, like joining a local meditation community or attending a meditation retreat. Being surrounded by others who are going through similar experiences can be extremely helpful and can provide a sense of support and community.

I hope this helps!

Hi there,

I personally struggle with anxiety and have found that practicing mindfulness meditation has been helpful for me. Mindfulness meditation involves focusing on your breath and being present in the moment without judgment. When I begin to feel anxious, I take a few minutes to focus on my breath and bring myself into the present moment. This helps me to calm my mind and reduce my anxiety levels.

I would also recommend trying guided meditations for anxiety. There are many available on apps like Headspace and Calm, as well as on YouTube. These guided meditations can help you to focus and provide a sense of calm during moments of anxiety.

I hope this helps!

Hello there,

I can relate to your struggle with anxiety and have found that mantra meditation has been helpful for me. Mantra meditation involved repeating a phrase or sound that can help calm the mind and reduce stress. When I begin to feel anxious, I repeat a positive affirmation such as "I am calm and at peace" or "I am in control of my mind and body" to calm my mind.

Another great form of meditation for anxiety is transcendental meditation. It involves focusing on a single mantra or sound while sitting for 20 minutes twice a day. It has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety levels, so it may be worth looking into.

I hope this helps you find a meditation practice that works for you!

Hi everyone,

I have personally struggled with anxiety and have found that body scan meditation has been helpful for me. Body scan meditation involves progressively relaxing different parts of the body, which can help to release tension and reduce anxiety.

During body scan meditation, I start at the top of my head and work my way down, paying close attention to each part of my body and consciously relaxing any tension that I find. This practice helps me to identify where I hold tension in my body and learn how to release it.

Another helpful form of meditation for anxiety is visualization meditation. This type of meditation involves visualizing a calming or peaceful image, like a beach or a forest, which can help to create a sense of relaxation and reduce anxiety levels.

I hope this helps!
