Today, clinical psychologist and anxiety expert Dr. David Carbonell provides effective step-by-step instructions for a simple mindfulness meditation for anxiety. These instructions are from his popular audiobook, "Panic Attacks Workbook: A Guided Program for Beating the Panic Trick (Second Edition)".
