How can we eliminate stress when it feels like too high of a bar for us to achieve?
Just like how our emotions can be dictated by chemicals in our brain, anxiety may also still arise. However, I think really the goal of mindfulness is to be aware of these changes in our body and moods, to be aware of our thoughts/worries/anxieties. Once we are aware of it, we won’t get caught up in it and it won’t overpower us. So it’s more about bringing mindfulness to whatever is going on inside us, and in doing so, we can observe it rather than be consumed by it.
