Stress Reduction & Mindfulness
Are you experiencing stress?
If you answered "yes" to some of these questions, you are experiencing stress. Stress can make you depressed or irritable or angry. Stress can cause problems in your relationships. Stress can interfere with your effectiveness at work or school, and it can damage your physical health.
Three ways we can help you reduce your stress
Research has found that Mindfulness is a very effective stress reduction technique. Mindfulness means being aware of your thoughts, feelings and sensations without judging them.
When you are mindful, you don't dwell on the past, you don't worry about the future, and you don't constantly criticize yourself or anyone else. Being mindful means judging less, struggling less, experiencing more, and enjoying life more.
This means being aware of thoughts, feelings, and sensations throughout the day. You can walk mindfully, wash dishes mindfully, eat mindfully, etc. Living mindfully instead of being on automatic pilot or lost in your thoughts and feelings can make you more efficient, and greatly increase your enjoyment of life.
This refers to taking out a short period of time to close your eyes and focus your attention in a way that teaches non-judgmental, present-focused awareness. There are many mindfulness exercises, and we will recommend the exercises that are right for you.
How mindfulness can reduce your stress
Mindfulness is relaxing, and it also helps you tune in to thoughts, feelings, and things going on around you that you might have missed. Mindfulness can increase your joy in life, improve your relationships, make you more effective at work or school, and strengthen your immune system.
As part of your treatment at Cognitive Behavioral Psychologists of New Jersey, your therapist will design a stress reduction program, possibly including mindfulness, that fits into your lifestyle and enables you to live a happy and rewarding life.
