    Hello,

    I’ve been thinking lately about meditation for helping me to deal with anxiety. I have a fairly decent (decently bad) case of social anxiety, and I have been meditating off and on for years now. However, I have come to become skeptical over some of the claims by those who promulgate meditation for ‘curing’ ailments, especially regarding anxiety disorders. I’ve become concerned with some methodological flaws in research regarding meditation, and although I am not a doctor/scientist, I’m unsure of how exactly focusing one’s mind would dissipate anxiety.

    So, for those of you who meditate, do you feel as if it helps relieve anxiety?

    Thanks,
    mbachman
