Mindfulness ? for Stress & Depression :)

I just read an article in a magazine about the power of it as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and it works

this website below is part of Oxford University dept. of Psychiatry

http://oxfordmindfulness.org/

http://www.mindfulnet.org/index.htm

If anyone wants a copy of the article pm me your email and I will send the two pages to you

I am feeling lots of stress just now, and using it to help me relax and gain more energy


It is not the easiest thing to do, but stick with it and it does work
ps I am just viewing "Dynamo" on TV utterly amazing

Good for you, CBT is very effective for depression, but mindfulness can be a helpful way to approach life and experience less stress.

Peter, thanks for your kind thoughts - its "the impending move" until the Architects have the final plans for the formal Planning App - we dont know "'s how much we get minimum + uplift (uplift due to Winchester House price increases going up lots due to so few homes for sale!) ... and that impacts on What we buy and where ... it is so very exciting, retiring ! but a little bit stressful too

Dave, stress is life but now I have found something that can generally help, every day ... and makes me "feel better" and smile more

try it ... you have a perfect place, in your conservatory, laying on the floor looking up at your fish ... wonderful

Re: Mindfulness ? for Stress & Depression :)

Sorry Chevvy, am I missing something?

I can find lots of links to show me how wonderful this is, but not a single one to tell me how it actually works or what you have to do...but they do seem to be asking for money?

For that reason...I'm out!

Janet
