Globally, there is a growing interest in the benefits of mindfulness and mindfulness training. Mindfulness training and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is increasingly being used as an adjunct to a range of psychological and medical-based therapies to enhance mental well-being. There are a number of diagnoses for which mindfulness is considered to be particularly beneficial. Mindfulness training may also have restorative and preventative health benefits.
Mindfulness is simply a cognitive skill one learns to assist being present or, aware of whats happening right now, without hoping it was different. When one can enjoy the present moment and remain grounded without fear of distress, then the body and mind can process as needed.
Mindfulness is beneficial for:
Anxiety and excessive worry
Chronic pain and stress involved with serious health problems
Depression and depression relapse prevention
Stress and stress-related conditions
General physical and mental well-being
Building psychological resilience and self-care to prevent burnout
