Sometimes I just need to be alone and pray and try to collect my thoughts of the days events and I try to think rationally, but sometimes you can overthink and think negative thoughts and overdo it, worrying about things that might not even happen.

Helps overall to center my day, but does not help when I am experiencing full-on anxiety. Cannot quiet my mind.

Shamatha, walking and tonglen. The teachings of Pema Chodron are very nurishing

Shamatha meditation focused on breath tonglen meditation loving kindness meditation and walking meditation. I learned from a Tibetan Buddhist center. BooksAudios by Pema Chordan are also very nurturing!
