Mindfulness is the individual’s awareness of his or her purpose in life. This approach is usually done within meditation and other self-awareness therapies. It has several benefits, including reduced stress, lessened harmful ruminating, and protection against bouts of depression and anxiety. Studies also suggest that being mindful can guide people to better cope with failure, rejection, and isolation.
One therapy that makes use of mindfulness is the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. This approach utilizes mindfulness in breathing exercises and other forms of meditation to help the individual enhance his or her self-awareness. Our therapists will teach our patients on how to break free from negative thoughts that can result in a depressed state, and being able to escape depression before it takes hold of them.
