We hear the word ‘mindfullness’ a lot in a conversation and in the media. Put simply’mindfullness’ is about developing our awareness. It uses mind-body-based trainings, called mindfullness practices , to enable us to bring out attention , deliberately everyday acrivities so that we can turn into our thought emotions, moods, senses and bodily sensations as they are right here, right now. This focus on the present moment is a key aspect of mindfullness for it is only in the prsesnt that we can pause and give ourselves , for it is only in the present that we can pause and give ourselves the space to respond to thoughts , feelings and events in our lives.
For example , very often we eat without much awareness . Eating mindfully involves deliberately slowing down to savour the taste, smell and texture of food. You can try for yourself some of the practices that we describe later, incoporating them into your daily life.
We will look at how mindfulness and in particular , mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) can help break the cycle og recurrent depression. MBCT is an intervention that integrates the ideas and practices of mindfulness with techniques and understnding from cognitive behavioural therapy, to help people who have experienced recurrent depression to stay well in the long term. As you learn more about mindfulness , perhaps even choosing to participate in an eight-week MBCT course, you may acquire some of the same newfound skills and attitudes .
It is often said that it is difficult to describe mindfulness in words, a better way to understand it is to experience it. The brief exercise below is a good taster of mindfulness – read it first before trying it for yourself.
