The Greatest Gift People with Anxiety can Give Themselves.

The Daily Mindful—part of the Elephant Journal community—is your guide to the mindful life: sustainability, genuine spirituality, conscious consumerism, politics…anything that helps us to live a good life that also happens to be good for others, and our planet.
