Mindfulness helps patients learn how to pay moment-to-moment attention to themselves and their surroundings without judgment.
How does Mindfulness treatment help?
Often when we are stressed, depressed or struggling in life with sadness, pain or any other difficulty, we can feel out of control and unable to put our situation into perspective. Mindfulness treatment aims to help individuals:
- Use their awareness to deal more effectively with stress
- Choose their reactions as opposed to being enslaved to them
- Develop breathing and meditation techniques to find a stable centre
- Connect with a place of inner calm in the midst of pressure
- Develop clarity and focus when they feel overwhelmed
- Improve self esteem
- Improve relationships with others
- Develop an increased sense of aliveness and energy
- Learn to accept and let go of what they cannot change
- Improve health and wellbeing
What happens in Mindfulness?
When we bring Mindfulness into our lives, we develop the ability to notice when we have engaged in critical and judgmental thinking and learn how to use the breath and body as a safe haven to anchor us to the present moment. This shift in awareness and attitude can enable us to respond to problems with renewed focus, wisdom and confidence.
