One of the best ways to control catastrophic thinking and other symptoms of anxiety is to start practicing relaxation and mindfulness. Just as high levels of anxiety can impact the function of the brain, so can meditation. Through meditation, you can become more mindful of your thought patterns and when they are becoming unhealthy. Other skills that come from meditation include breaking negative thought patterns, improving control of random thoughts, and decreasing the tendency to worry. Meditation as a form of practicing relaxation and mindfulness can also help with depression. It releases serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is believed to be essential for feelings of happiness.
