Mindfulness Practice May Help
Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and accepting of one's thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations moment to moment. It is helpful in the treatment of anxiety and many other mental health issues. Through practice, one can learn to simply observe their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental manner - neither judging or trying to change the way things are. Mindfulness can help us to put things in perspective, to become more accepting and grateful of our life circumstances and to operate from a place of wisdom rather than fear. Mindfulness is not part of any specific religion and can be helpful to persons from any religious or spiritual background.
Mindfulness skills can be helpful for those that are seeking a decrease in worry, anxiety or irritability or who desire a better relationship with themselves and those around them.
Quieting the mind can lead to increased confidence, calmer moods, decreased anxiety and improved coping skills.
