Mindfulness is the practice of being aware and having an open and accepting attitude. As Americans increasingly struggle with anxiety, depression and stress, research shows mindfulness can give you the tools to handle change and internal conflict more positively.
So next time you find your thoughts spinning out of control, try to STOP them using mindful techniques:
1. Slow down.
2. Take a breath.
3. Observe your body, thoughts and feelings.
4. Process your possibilities, then keep going.
The benefits of mindfulness stretch beyond mental health. Being mindful can also help you manage chronic pain, strengthen your problem-solving and decision-making processes, and improve your overall well-being.
