What’s the best anti-anxiety medicine? According to organizational psychologist and author Adam Grant, it’s “generosity.” He further explains,

The great thing about showing up for other people is that it doesn’t have to cost a whole lot or anything at all, and it ends up being beneficial to the giver.

This is easier said than done, especially when our anxiety overwhelms us to the point of feeling that isolation is the only option. But finding an inspiring and encouraging community outside of work or home can be challenging.

Coined by the sociologist Ray Oldenburg, the term “third place” represents a neutral ground, where the people are there willingly; where their social or economic status is unimportant; and where they can feel at home. Essentially, you can be yourself free of judgement or have to pay to be there.

This is why the Buddhability community exists, and here’s some one-word descriptors from our community members about what you can expect to experience: acceptance, hope, warmth, sincerity, accessibility, support, resilience, family, understanding, connection, trust and openness. There are more but we’ll stop here.
