Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction vs Escitalopram for the Treatment of Adults with Anxiety Disorder

This article discusses a recent study that found that daily mindfulness meditation is as effective as SSRI medication in reducing anxiety.

Key takeaways:
1. Mindfulness meditation and SSRI medication are equally effective at relieving anxiety.
2. People may struggle with the daily time commitment of meditation.
3. Mindfulness meditation classes are typically two-and-a-half hours long and require 40 minutes of meditation per day.

Counter arguments:
1. The time commitment of meditation may be too much for some people.
2. The "Let them eat cake" analogy is used to describe the difficulty of the time commitment.
