Mindfulness and Awareness
If you’re struggling with mindfulness, you are not alone. In stressful times, you may have trouble staying focused and aware. You might forget important things, like meetings or appointments. Your thoughts may race so much at night that they keep you awake for hours on end. You may avoid situations where something could go wrong because you’re afraid of uncertainty. You may feel depressed because you’re living in the past, or anxious because you are living in the future. All of these things make it very difficult for you to savor the present moment.
Learning mindfulness techniques can help you emerge from the slump that you are in, and regain motivation and a curiosity for life.
Benefits of Mindfulness:
- Reduced rumination
- Decreased emotional reactivity
- Genuine, fulfilling relationships
- Stress relief
- Physical health
Counseling can help with Mindfulness and Awareness
Mindfulness and awarenessare some of our favorite tools for coping with the world around us. Mindfulness is when you bring awareness to your current state of being, or to what you are currently experiencing. This happens either through your senses, or your thoughts and emotions.
When you utilize mindfulness skills, you increase your awareness of yourself and the world, which is half the solution to whatever you are struggling with. Using these tools can help you shed light on and then integrate whatever is holding you back.
Integrative Counsel’s approach to Mindfulness
Without awareness and mindfulness, you will find it more challenging to stay present and engaged with life. When you are experiencing anxiety, you are living in a future that hasn’t happened yet, and when you are experiencing depression, you are living in the past. Our therapists can help give you the tools you need to be able to consistently come back to the present moment, allowing you to integrate all parts of you and fully participate in life. Integrative Counsel uses art therapy, yoga-informed therapy, and DBT to help you work through whatever causes you to feel out of touch with the present moment.
