The Buddha offered many teachings to help people end their suffering, the ﬁrst and most important being the Four Noble Truths. They offer us a structure with which to reflect upon our suffering and transform it through conscious action. Whatever form your suffering takes—stress, anxiety, weight gain, addiction, conflict, or something else—thoughtful consideration of these truths will help.
1. All of us have suffering in our lives.
2. We can identify the causes of our suffering.
