Mindfulness (and how it may help)

By on 20 March 2015 in General

Mindfulness Mindfulness is defined as “the intentional, accepting and non-judgemental focus of one’s attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment” and is based on elements of Buddhist practice. It is a way of really thinking about and focusing on your feelings and emotions without judgement or trying to change them in any way.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, who is a Professor at the University of Massachusetts, founded his Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programme to help people to cope with stress, anxiety, pain and illness.Nowadays, mindfulness programmes are everywhere with many businesses, schools and other organisations running them.

For people with NEAD, mindfulness can help you to deal with difficult emotions,learn to relax and reduce stress. It is something that needs to be practised every day to be most effective. The best way to learn mindfulness is to attend a MBSR programme in your area. Ask your GP, neurologist or check the internet. There are also lots of mobile phone mindfulness apps available.
