Question 1<br /> How can Mindfulness relive Depression, Anxiety and Stress?
When we live in the past we often become depressed, wishing for alternative decissions and outcomes.
When we live in the future we become anxious of all there is to do and what is unknown.
However, when we live in the present moment we can see the miracle of a life here and now, we can appreciate everything it took to get to this moment, the only moment we are alive, the present moment. The truth becomes clear and we can just be here with whatever is.
Question 2<br /> Whenever I have tried to meditate my mind just runs and seems to have a mind of its own. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?
absolutely it is normal and congratulations on being aware of your mind doing what it was born to do, think.
Even people whom have meditated for most their lives experience a racing mind more often than not. It is about bringing Awareness to racing mind, not slowing it or trying to stop your thoughts.
Question 3<br /> Is Meditation when we stop things?
