Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness: A Do-It-Yourself Guide To Wellness


Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness

A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Wellness

By Andrew Safer

Instead of trying to get rid of anxiety and stress, we can change our relationship to them. Mindfulness practice grounds us. Our drama-of-the-moment becomes thoughts and feelings that come and go as we navigate back to now. Awareness wakes us up from automatic pilot, and the mental fog begins to lift. Damaging self-talk starts to lose its authority, and anxiety and stress become less dire and more textured; we can work with them.

Mindfulness instructor Andrew Safer presents meditation, pausing, loving-kindness, and mindfulness-in-everyday- life activities using vivid examples. Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness is based on the “Navigating Anxiety and Stress through Mindfulness” workshop series he has been conducting since 2013.

Excerpt from Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Wellness

If we’re constantly pushing anxiety away and holding it at bay, how can we ever get to know it? As long as we maintain this “safe distance,” anxiety will keep haunting us. It’s the adult version of being spooked by monsters under the bed.

Reader Comments

“Mainstream mindfulness offers much to those who dare to practice the meditation. Yet, at its very core, mindfulness offers the possibility of living a fully realized and utterly human life. In this guidebook, Andrew explores this profound possibility and reveals that such wisdom is more accessible than we could ever imagine.”

–Michael Carroll, author, Awake at Work, and mindfulness teacher, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“Enlightening, credible and relevant. Andrew highlights why mindfulness is needed right now in our busy, always-be-doing-something society and shows how we can integrate it into our lives using practical examples and instructions. This is a book you can continue to learn from each time you read it.”

–Cynthia Slade MD, FRCPC, psychiatrist, Avalon Specialty Clinic, St. John’s, Newfoundland

“Anxiety, Stress & Mindfulness offers clarity, depth which can guide the reader through the practice, and implementation of effective mindfulness.  It is compact yet comprehensive as an introduction. I think that it will be most helpful to persons who are diagnosed with depression, PTSD, chronic stress, and ADHD.”

Helen Martinez, PBVM, Psy. D, psychologist, St. John’s, Newfoundland
