Beschreibung

There are a number of misconceptions that surround the subject of mindfulness and mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness is the art of acceptance and non judgmental attention and focus on your emotions, thoughts and any sensations that occur in the present moment. Many clinical psychologists and psychiatrists have developed a number of therapeutic programs that are based on mindfulness since 1970. These programs are designed to help people that are experiencing many types of psychological conditions. Mindfulness is used in psychology to provide relief from a variety of mental and physical conditions, and has also been proved to reduce the symptoms of depression, reduce stress and anxiety and can also be an enormous help in the treatment of drug addiction. Mindfulness has gained an enormous following worldwide as a characteristic that enables people to handle their emotions in a controlled way. There have been a number of clinical studies that have recognized the mental health and physical benefits that highlight the benefits that can be brought about by mindfulness in general and mindfulness based stress reduction. The programs that are based on mindfulness based stress reduction and other similar models have been widely adopted today and are widely adapted to be used in prisons, schools, hospitals and many other environments. Mindfulness can be practiced by anyone, anywhere and for any length of time and is also an art that is easy to incorporate into your daily life. Mindfulness meditation can be practiced by closing your eyes and sitting either on a cushion, or chair, with a straight back. The focus is place on the movement of your stomach whilst breathing in and out or on awareness of your breath as you inhale and exhale. If thoughts come into your mind the idea is to let these go and return your focus to breathing. It is right to acknowledge that your mind has wandered but in an accepting and non-judgmental way. Mindfulness as a practice can be described as a way of paying attention in a particular way, deliberately in the present moment without passing judgment, and brings a person’s complete attention to the here and now in a moment to moment basis. Mindfulness has become hugely popular as a practiced undertaken in daily life and is seen by many as a mode of being that can be practiced both in a formal and informal way in any setting. Since 2006, much research has been undertaken and this proves and supports mindfulness based therapies for a number of medical and psychiatric conditions, particularly chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and recurrent suicidal behavior. Whilst there are various specialist that have made criticisms of how mindfulness is described and the popularity of mindfulness as a commodity and many state that the popularity of mindfulness is a result of an elaborate marketing strategy that describes mindfulness as a well constructed dream; an idealized lifestyle and an identity makeover. This book will provide you with a good grounding of mindfulness and mindfulness relaxation that uses ways of breathing and many other practices that assist with the relaxation of the mind and body and is immensely helpful in the reduction of stress. By practicing mindfulness and mindfulness meditation you will learn to appreciate your life fully as you will be aware of every moment. By letting go of any preconceptions and learning to live without judging yourself you will learn to live a full, healthy and happy life.

Chapter 1 – What is mindfulness?

Introduction

Mindfulness is a simple form of meditation that has become more and more popular in recent years. Typically meditation is the art of focusing all of your attention on our breathing as it comes into the body and out. By focusing on your breathing you can observe thoughts as they arise and let go of them. You will understand and realize that thoughts come and go, and that you are not your thoughts. By understanding that thoughts and feelings are transient and you do have the choice on whether you act on them or not, are of vital importance to achieve mindfulness.

Mindfulness is about looking at things without criticism and being kind to yourself. When you find yourself in a situation that makes you stressed or unhappy, mindfulness teaches you not to take things personally but to treat them as if they are passing clouds that you acknowledge, think about for a moment and watch as they pass. Mindfulness sees you catching negative thought patterns before you spiral downwards, in essence mindfulness is the process of getting back control of your life.

There are numerous benefits and reasons that should have you wandering why you have never undertaken mindfulness, however despite these facts many people remain wary, and this is probably due to the misconceptions that surround the word mindfulness.

What is mindfulness?

Chapter 1 – What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness has gained popularity in recent years with many people trying to practice it through their everyday lives.

Mindfulness can be defined as:

The state of being mindful

The practice of being able to remain nonjudgmental and fully aware of one’s thoughts, experiences and emotions at any given time

The term mindfulness originates from the term sati which is a term that is used in Buddhist practices and it also includes the following elements:

Vipassana which means to see things as they are, and this is one of the most ancient meditation techniques

Satipatthana which is the Pali word for the Buddhist perception of the foundations of mindfulness

Anapanasati meaning the mindfulness of breathing which is a form of Buddhist meditation that is common with Tibetan, Tiantai, Theravada and Zen Buddhism

The practice of developing a state of mindfulness was recognized thousands of years ago by Eastern cultures. In spite of this the Western world has only identified its depth and importance for lifelong well being recently. Mindfulness only really became popular at the end of the last century because of the American professor Jon Kabat-Zim introduced a program that he developed called the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Prior to developing his program he was a student of several well known Buddhist teachers, and also a committed yoga and meditation professional and it was this that led him and gave him the inspiration to create the MBSR program.

Jon Kabat-Zim thought that his program could help those
