Mindfulness teacher and author Frances Trussell works with people experiencing anxiety and depression to help them re-engage with the present and find more calm and joy by doing so.

  • The biggest obstruction to feeling calm and joy when you’re anxious
  • The surprising truth about how quickly you can access calm
  • How toxic positivity gets in the way
  • Reframing mindfulness for those who eyeroll at the mention of it
  • A quick and effective action to calm anxiety
