So this is directed to anyone in the community who might have useful insights. I have some clients at the moment who have become increasingly anxious due to covid. I plan to suggest some mindfulness practice to help but I was wondering what specific mindfulness exercises people have used and found to be effective when it comes to helping with anxiety.

Thanks in advance for your sharing. 🙏

Hey Mark,

So first of all, your question reminds me of something that was put up on Mindfulness Exercises a few months ago. It's a simple guide for dealing with anxiety during covid times, so it might be a good resource to consider: https://mindfulnessexercises.com/dealing-with-covid-19/

There are so many different practices one could explore, but two that stand out are 1) breathing practices that ease the stress response, and 2) those that increase our sense of community. The first (such as diaphragmatic breathing) can help us to manage the physiological effect of heightened stress, whereas the second is so important given that I think many people are feeling isolated and alone right now. Online meditation groups could be helpful for those want to feel some connection but aren't ready or able to connect in person with groups. There's also a resources on ME from a while back that features some online groups. I'm not sure how many are still running, but it could be something for your clients to check out: https://mindfulnessexercises.com/online-mindfulness-meditation-groups-to-join-during-covid-19/

Absolutely. Even the most basic mindfulness and meditation practices, such as breath awareness or mindful movement, can have such a profound impact on our stress and anxiety levels. There's a very short and simple meditation practice led by Sean for relieving stress in the 'Audio' section of the resources - https://mindfulnessmastermind.com/sean-fargos-mindfulness-meditations/
