In a nutshell mindfulness teaches you to live in the moment. So don’t worry about the future or the past, just learn to concentrate on the here and now, to block out everything else.

So for example, don’t worry about a test you have in school that is making you anxious, or a job review from management at work. Just concentrate on the fact that you’re in your room, listening to music, looking out the window, breathing regularly, just concentrating on the here and now.

Over time it helps alleviate mild to moderate generalized anxiety and worry which lowers overall stress. However, if you are having a hardcore panic attack you’ll probably need a benzo. BUT, if you get good at being mindful your panic attacks will probably not occur all that often anymore.
