Gently, without berating yourself: just take a couple of deep breaths and focus on what’s happening right this second.

This breath, this heartbeat, this sensation.

I know I’ve touched upon this many times in the articles I’ve written on here, but being mindful and staying in the present moment really is one of the best ways to combat anxiety and quell the constant “what ifs” that arise, especially when it comes to death.

It also allows us to fully enjoy and appreciate every experience that we have, and find immense peace in this extraordinary journey we call life.
