Reflecting on painful experiences or worries is natural, however, if we do it too often and for too long it can have serious consequences for our physical and mental health. Research consistently shows that people who ruminate are more likely to develop problems with anxiety and depression, and are at higher risk from many forms of self-sabotaging behaviours. Rumination is about getting stuck.
So, how do we make sure that we maintain a healthy mind and a positive emotional balance?
The practice of Mindfulness helps us to shift perspective and to realise that our emotions and sensations are just thoughts, rather than “truth” or “me”. Mindfulness trains the mind to develop a sustained relaxed attention with purpose, compassion and non-judgement, to the present moment and encourages observing everything that goes on in the mind “without judging, reacting or holding on”.
Through continuous practice, mindfulness meditation helps people to draw themselves out of rumination, to allow letting go of what you can’t control – the past and the future – and focus instead on the present.
Join us for a workshop where we will explore why we worry and how to turn our rumination into positive present focusing. To do this we will use a mindfulness exercise as a way of relating more positively to our thoughts and feelings as they arise. In this way we can reduce the drain of negative emotions and cultivate a more self-reflective present focusing.
