TWR 020: On Meditation and Stress Management with Sarah McDevitt

It’s really common to have light anxiety about life situations, work activities, family, or general daily tasks. When anxiety levels increase for no apparent reason and it starts to become the “new normal” for someone to live with, that’s when we can identify that something is wrong. A few well-known practices like meditation are an important part of the process when handling anxiety and stress.

Join us in this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast as Amber and Sarah McDevitt talk about the power of meditation, the power of paying attention to the present, and how anxiety is really just a manifestation of our worries with the future. Many of us suffer more in imagination than in reality. The reason that meditation is so important is that it brings us back to here, back to this moment. Tune in to learn more!
