Today, stress and anxiety become a common thing. Even when everything seems fine, societal pressures and expectations can make it challenging to maintain good mental health. Stress does more bad than good on our physical and mental health. 

Personally, I have also dealt with constant stress and anxiety throughout my life.

When I was in school, I was always worried about studying and exams. I couldn’t wait to grow up and be an adult, when I thought I would finally be free from all that stress. But as I grew older, I realized that there was always something to be concerned about, whether it was work, social life, relationships, or marriage.
I have tried various methods to cope with stress and anxiety, but one approach that has truly made a difference is mindfulness practices.

There are tons of benefit from practicing simple mindfulness activities, this post will specifically focus on how to deal with stress and anxiety with mindfulness practices.
