All of us face anxiety in life, but when it becomes uncontrollable, it can affect health. We are equipped to handle a certain level of anxiety, but when we cross the threshold level, the signs of the problem starts showing. If the anxiety keeps lingering and growing, it would lead to fear and apprehension. You start worrying too much and become doubtful about yourself, lose self-confidence and experience nervousness and fear. The normal mental and emotional functions face disruptions, and you pass through a period of disorder that can have far-reaching effects on your health.
The vicious circle
You would not be able to get rid of the thoughts that create anxiety, as it would keep coming back and the saddest part is that it keeps feeding on its own without any signs of respite. The thoughts that you would like to forget to keep circling and you become a helpless victim of an uncontrolled mind that you cannot bear. The only way to arrest the slide and reverse the trend is to practice meditation that has the powers to eradicate anxiety from the roots.
Relax your mind
The agitated mind needs a breather that only meditation can provide. In meditation, the amount of time you spend is not as important as the state of mind that you achieve during the time. Therefore, meditating for 15 minutes daily gives a good dose of tranquility to the mind, provided you can cut through the chaos of racing thoughts that plague your mind. Meditation is one of the most affordable investments for good health that gives you the space to be all alone by yourself and shed the attachments that lead to wandering thoughts. Do not have the wrong notion that the more time you spend meditating, the better it would be for you. It all depends on how much of mental refreshment you derive from the session and not how long it lasts.
Mind control is not easy
Practicing meditations for when anxious mind is bothering you might not be an easy job. If you try the traditional methods, it will take quite some time before you transcend into the meditative state. When you have an agitated mind, you are likely to be upset and feel anxious which hinders the process of mind relaxation and makes it difficult to stay focused after muffling the disturbing thoughts. It would be almost impossible to suppress the flow of unwanted thoughts.
To overcome the problem, you can take recourse to assisted meditation. Some form of brainwave entertainment programs, mainly comprising of musical notes in the form of beats and other sounds creates a brainwave state of meditation. The musical effects create a blanket that covers the unwanted thoughts and prepares you for diving into the meditative state.
The real process starts now when you should gradually be able to monitor your thoughts, take a different point of view and finally realize that you were worrying about all imaginary things. You then start feeling there is nothing to worry about at all.
