Slate has a nice piece on American anxiety today. Reasons why we're anxious? Parts One, Two, Three, (a reference, ever so obliquely, to Ian Drury's "Reasons to Be Cheerful: Part Three).
Turns out the author thinks "loss of community, information overload, and a crummy attitude toward uncomfortable emotions" are the reasons for ballooning anxiety. And thought the article doesn't say so, a meditation practice is a great response to all three.
A reason to be cheerful, indeed.
