Mindfulness, stress, anxiety and low mood


We know that there is a growing body of academic evidence which suggests that practicing mindfulness regularly can help with stress, anxiety, and depression. That being said, mindfulness is not a panacea, a magical solution to all life's difficulties. Mindfulness practitioners will still encounter stressful experiences, moments of anxiety, and feelings of low mood. The difference lies in the relationship they have with these feelings and experiences. 

Mindfulness enables us to recognise and turn toward difficult thoughts, emotions, and sensations instead of trying to suppress, ruminate or fight with them. It provides us with the space we need to develop more skilful responses to these difficulties, instead of reacting in habitual and automatic ways.
