Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Do You Suffer from Chronic Disease, Constant Pain, Very Stressful Job or Difficult Relationship with Your Spouse, Kids or Co-workers?
You find yourself anxious, worrying or depressed all the time, but you DO NOT WANT to take ANTI-ANXIETY and ANTI-DEPRESSANT medicines….
As these medicines tend to be addictive and you don’t want to subject yourself to potentially very harmful side-effects like loss of libido and memory.
You really want a completely NATURAL but SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN way to not just suppress the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression but actually address the root cause.
If this is so… Mindfulness can help.
But what is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention to our present experience.
It is pretty much the awareness. But it is not the usual awareness that you are familiar with. It is non-judgmental awareness.
You may ask, how can ‘Mindfulness’ or awareness help you relieve stress, anxiety and depression?
Cultivation of Mindfulness helps transform your relationship with your experience and your reality.
Because Mindfulness transcends usual thought activity, it opens up a new reality to which we are normally unaware.
It doesn’t mean you ignore difficulties. On the contrary, with mindfulness, you face difficulties head on.
Cultivation of Mindfulness changes the structure of your brain. You get a BRAIN MAKEOVER!.
Have you noticed that some people are able to maintain their balance without getting stressed, anxious or depressed, even under the most intense and worse situations?
Cultivating Mindfulness changes your brain….to be more like those people.
So that you are able to think clearly, positively and creatively in the worst of situations?
Now you to get an upper hand on ruminative and out of control thoughts.
Without in-depth understanding, it may sound wishy-washy, but it really is not at all.
Mindfulness is very different compared to traditional medicine or quick cure that we all have gotten used to. It doesn’t work fast, but once learned it sticks for the rest of our lives.
In reality Mindfulness helps you uncover and grow internal resources that you already posses that can help you deal with stress, problems and difficulties in life.
Mindfulness leads to the profound realization that YOU as a human being, are MUCH BIGGER than your problems, difficulties, aches and sorrows!
Mindfulness it cultivated through meditation practices.
The best way to learn to cultivate Mindfulness is through the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program.
Known by its short form MBSR, this program was started by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D at University of Massachusetts, Medical Center, in 1979.
MBSR came from UMass Medical Center. It goes to show that Mindfulness doesn’t mean mumbo-jumbo and it means serious health care.
MBSR is a 8-week intensive program. Each week we meet in a group setting for 2 and 1/2 hours to 3 and 1/2 hours. In the 7th week we meet for a whole day session. There is a total of 29 hours of instructions in this program.
Last two decades of research have consistently shown that MBSR program participants had
- Dramatic reduction in anxiety and depression.
- Dramatic reductions in pain levels, even with chronic pain.
- Increased ability to cope with the pain that may not go away.
- Developed much effective abilities to cope and manage both short and long term stress.
- Much improved self-esteem.
- Improved immune system.
- Increased ability to focus and concentrate.
Not only that, the meditation practices used to cultivate Mindfulness are known to change your DNA for the better and turns on gene expression of the genes that are beneficial to you.
Sounds too good to be true? I don’t blame you.
We all have been duped by pumped up marketing messages. It helps to have a healthy skepticism as you don’t want to be credulous.
But at the same time, the TRUTH needs to be told.
All the benefits listed above are backed by solid scientific data.
YOU can dramatically REDUCE anxiety, depression, chronic pain and stress.
Not only that, when life throws curve-balls at you in the future….which it will for sure… YOU will already have the resources and abilities at hand to deal with them appropriately.
Meditation works by literally changing the structure of your brain.
The more you meditate, more your brain changes, no matter how old you are.
Of course, there are no short cuts or quick fixes and one has to develop a disciplined regular practice in order to get the benefits.
