You are not an anxious person trying to learn how to be calm. You are a calm person who has spent too much time practicing being anxious. Being calm is your birthright. (Not 24/7, of course, stress does have its uses.) Therefore, you do not have to spend all day every day practicing advanced yoga or meditation techniques. You need only take a few deep mindful breaths, spend a few minutes watching your thoughts to make sure they are not bringing you down, or take a few minutes to stretch. These simple techniques will help ease depression, chronic pain, and everyday irritation, and will help you enjoy a sense of well-being right now.
Perhaps some day you may become a great swami or Buddha. But try to enjoy life along the way.
We wish you twenty minutes of mindfulness every day!
