Most of us experience between 50 000 to 80 000 thoughts a day, when we are experiencing anxiety, many of these thoughts can be stress related. When we examine the nature of these thoughts, most of them are rooted either in the past or in the future. However, as soon as we are able to bring our focus to the present moment, we move away from the stress thoughts and the negative neuro-endocrine cascade that can flood the body and propel us into the HPA syndrome (Hypothalamic, Pituitary Adrenal Axis) – or fight and flight as it is commonly called. We will explore mindfulness techniques with you to bring you into the present moment to manage anxiety in a more effective manner.
