Jon Kabat Zinn describes mindfulness as paying attention in a particular way to the present moment with a non-judgmental stance. It is a practice often used in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to improve awareness, emotion regulation and coping strategies.
Mindfulness therapy improves awareness, emotion regulation and coping strategies
Mindfulness can help you to:
- use your awareness to deal more effectively with stress
- choose your reactions as opposed to automatically reacting from instinct
- develop breathing and meditation techniques to connect with your stable centre
- connect with a place of inner calm in the midst of pressure
- develop clarity, focus and balance when you feel overwhelmed
- develop a more compassionate and patient stance
- improve your relationship with yourself and with others
- develop an increased sense of aliveness and energy
- learn to peacefully accept and let go of what you cannot change
- improve your health and well-being.
