Simple Practices With Big Results
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. It is the process of developing our focus of being in the here and now. MBT helps people separate themselves from their thoughts and moods, and teaches them how to be less reactive to their feelings.
Some mindfulness-based practices include: meditation, breathing exercises, walking, exercise, yoga, observing your thoughts, journaling, and letting go of distractions.
