The Power of Mindfulness
By: Talar Klahejian
We all hear about being mindful in our day to day lives. Taking deeper breaths, exercising, taking walks, enjoying nature, meditating, and getting good rest and making time for self-care. What we do tend to forget, is to keep implementing these practices in the face of chaos or adversity, when in fact, mindfulness is best used during times such as these. When in the face of daily stressors, crises, or accidents, mindfulness can be the most powerful healing tool you can implement to calm the anxiety that is arising.
Mindfulness, besides calming down the mind, can also improve your working memory and increases your capacity to remember. It can also reduce your emotional reactivity to life’s stressors. There is evidence that supports the role of mindful meditation resulting in disengaging behavior towards negative or emotionally upsetting situations and images. Mindfulness meditation can help you focus on the task at hand and keep an open mind to the entire experience of life, rather than the one negative moment that is happening in your life currently. Mindfulness helps us cope with depression, and boosts our psychological well-being.
Some daily practices to find mindfulness strategies and fall back on them can be spending 5-10 minutes by a window, outside, or in a quiet space and take deep and full breaths. With each breath, breathe in gratitude, love, thankfulness, and positive affirmations, and with every out breath, release all of your stressful thoughts, fears, worries, and negative self-talk. Just this simple 5-10 minutes in your day can dramatically increase your positive feelings towards yourself and the life around you. All self-care practices and mindfulness techniques must begin with each person and their daily commitment. We cannot control the stressors of life and the events that may occur, but we can bring our own self-awareness to the forefront of our minds to keep our mental health as a priority.
