What is Mindfulness and How Can it Help Me?

Mindfulness Intro.jpgMindfulness has been used to help treat mental and physical disorders in the West for the past 30 years or so.  It can help with pain management, low immune efficiency, addiction, depression, anxiety and stress.

In a nutshell, it is a way of experiencing life in the moment, rather than in your head.  Of accepting life as it is rather than avoiding it with thoughts and self told stories about the way things are.

If you suffer with any of the above afflictions, look up MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress-Reduction) as therapies.

    1. It’s exciting isn’t it. Definitely feeling the benefits and really want to try MBSR, as I hit stress level 10 really quickly.

      1. This is fabulous! I swear I hit stress level 10 several times a day and sometimes it feels like stress level 15!
