Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year’s topic is Mindfulness. For those of you that don’t know, I’m actually midway through studying for a Mindfulness diploma in order to become a registered practitioner, so this topic is spot on for me.
Mindfulness is something that’s become of interest to me since my diagnosis of BPD, and also since my anxiety has got much worse. I now try to meditate every morning, but of course, anyone that has tried Mindfulness will know that it’s an incredibly difficult thing to do and it takes a lot of time and determination to do it successfully.
With that said, it appears to be very useful – especially to those of us suffering with mental health conditions. Therefore, next week I have put together a schedule to post everyday, providing you all with as much information as I can about the practice.
Monday: Introduction – What is Mindfulness
Tuesday: Origins of Mindfulness
Wednesday: Who should use Mindfulness
Thursday: What Mindfulness does to help you
Friday: Does Mindfulness actually work? Pros and Cons
Saturday: Success stories
Sunday: My experiences with Mindfulness
If anyone has tried Mindfulness and is open to sharing their success stories or even negatives with the practice, please comment below as all information will be incredibly useful!
