An Easy Remedy for Anxiety and Depression: Living in the Now

Part of the Anxiety & Depression Workbook For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Most really anxious and depressing thoughts focus on the past or the future: Either you feel guilty about something you’ve done in the past or anticipate a whole series of awful events in the future. The remedy is to focus on living in the present, which you can do by following these instructions:

  • Sit quietly and take notice of your surroundings. Consider the light, sounds and everything around you.

  • Avoid the temptation to judge or evaluate, and just observe.

  • Notice your breath going in and out of your body.
