Meditation for Calming Fearful Memories

Volunteers trained in Mindfulness Meditation were able to break their "anxiety habit" caused by fearful memories. In this study the researchers used "safety memories" to help the participants in conjunction with the mindfulness meditation to do this.

They also learned through mindfulness how to stop judging their own thoughts. Overall the meditation group did better than the control group who used exercise based stress management. Meditation classes are available in many community centers, spiritual/buddhist communities, senior centers, YMCA's, etc. You can easily find one near you.

There's a short "holiday" tip having to do with wrapping gifts and creating expectations. Don't disappoint the person you are gifting by wrapping your gift "inappropriately".
