Quote:

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. This kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, clarity, and acceptance of the present-moment reality. It wakes u up to the fact that our lives unfold only in moments If we are not fully present for many of those moments, we may not only miss what is most valuable in our lives but also fail to realize the richness and the depth of our possibilities for growth and transformation. -Jon Kabat-Zinn

444: Put Your Anxious Worries On The Back Burner

In today's episode, Gina talks about a useful method to use the inherent wisdom and intelligence of the human being to reduce the intensity of anxiety surrounding particular ideas or issues we may be facing in our lives.  Essentially, this method calls for "containing" the idea or issue that is causing the anxious distress in a mental container (Gina refers to it as a "pot") and putting the container away until a later time.  Doing so can make the anxiety weaker, and make ourselves stronger, over this period of time.
