I ran across an interesting article on Psychology Today this afternoon. In it, the author provides four different strategies for managing anxiety, each of which can be remembered by a unique acronym. The first strategy is known as R.A.I.N. and was originally created by Michele McDonald (though the version below is attributed to Tara Brach).
R – Recognize what is happening
A – Allow life to be just as it is
I – Investigate inner experience with kindness
N – Non-identification
You can read about the other three strategies for anxiety-management at the link below. Let us know if you use any of them yourself, or if have another strategy you prefer even more.
