When you feel anxious, thoughts can race through your mind. You might fear something that is in the future, an impending doom so frightening that it can feel overwhelming. But it does not have to be.
If you focus on your breathing, you can bring yourself into the present moment. As you continue to notice your inward breath, and then your outward breath, you will notice the anxious thoughts and feelings coming and going. Let them bubble up and drift away. If you keep focusing on your breathing, you will not give the anxious thoughts and feelings fuel to grow. In time, they will come and go, and you will realise that anxious thoughts and feelings are as temporary as bubbles.
