mindfulness is focusing on the NOW and not thinking of the past or future--being completely in the present moment. For those of us who have generalized anxiety, there is a lot of "what if???" going on, and "what if'ss" are in the future. Check out info on mindulness at dbtselfhelp.com (there is a whole section on mindfulness), and PRACTICE so that you can access it when you need it by trying zazan--a japanese meditation techniques that is very simple. it is just counting the breaths. One in, one out, two in, two out...etc, up to ten then start again. The Key is to focus all of your attention JUST on your breath and the counting of your breath. When you think of something else (which you WILL), just go back to focusing o9n your breath. do this as many times as snecessary, but ALWAYS return to focusing on your breath after you become distracted. returning to focus is the important thing, not maintaining perfect focus. Practice this for at least five minutes a day to train your mind to sort of obey you, and teach you how to bring yourself back to the present moment and bring your focus to what you WANT to focus on, not all the intrusive worries. This takes practice, but it DOES help.

keep trying despite failure, and if you perservere, eventually you WILL succeed.
