Mindfulness – A Relaxing Tool for any Time of the Day.
Mindfulness is the practice of focusing on the here and now and shutting off distractions around you, in the past and the future. It is as simple as breathing slowly and with awareness, and it may only take two minutes to get started. It is a beautiful tool when anxiety starts to simmer up as all you have to do is breathe mindfully, and you will feel your heart rate drop and racing thoughts slow.
Some great Apps can get you started. Remember – you don’t have to pay for mindfulness exercises; there are free ones.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy (talking therapy) based on the idea that how you think and act affects how you feel. It is an excellent tool for managing anxiety.
Our Therapists are familiar with the practice of CBT. By talking with you, they can explore what negative situations trigger you emotionally, talk through your thoughts and ideas, and then look at how that affects your behaviours.
Understanding who you are and why you do things is often the tipping point to reaching wellness and moving you toward a life free from the impacts of anxiety.
