Publisher's Summary

Drawing on techniques and perspectives from two seemingly different traditions, this second edition of the self-help classic Calming Your Anxious Mind offers you a powerful and profound approach to overcoming anxiety, fear, and panic.
From the evidence-based tradition of Western medicine, learn the role your thoughts and emotions play in anxiety. And from the tradition of meditation and the inquiry into meaning and purpose, discover your own potential for presence and stillness, kindness and compassion - and the tremendous power these states give you to heal and transform your life.
Use this encouraging, step-by-step program to:


Learn about the mechanism of anxiety and the body's fear system
Develop a healing mindfulness practice - one breath at a time
Start on the path to presence, stillness, compassion, and loving-kindness
Practice acceptance during mindfulness meditation
Feel safe while opening up to fearful and anxious feelings

Boring.

listen very carefully.
"when you find yourself over thinking or thinking about the past or future, drag yourself back from that and teach yourself to be....in the moment. breath in and concentrate on each breath. feel things around you, notice things that are happening around you right now. teach yourself to live for right now"
OK that's the whole book over and over and over and over again....
