“I’ll say it dead straight, because this is how it was presented to me: when you’re the anxious type, meditation is non-negotiable.”
(That quote is from Sarah Wilson, in her lovely book on anxiety, First, We Make the Beast Beautiful.)
Wilson doesn’t say that meditation will 100% cure a tendency towards anxiety. It doesn’t.
But does it help? Yes, it does.
So I’ll ask: are you the anxious type?
