What Is Mindfulness Therapy?
Many of the harmful behaviors typically associated with eating disorders revolve around stress. When individuals can’t handle or manage their stress, unhealthy binge eating, restrictive, or otherwise disordered eating habits might develop or worsen. Fortunately, Magnolia Creek offers a comprehensive range of therapies and treatments that can work together to create a healthy environment for healing. Just one of those methods is called mindfulness therapy.
When used in general conversation, being mindful means being present, or being fully in the moment. For those with mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, or eating disorders, staying mindful can be challenging. However, through various therapeutic methods, clients can learn to be mindful and better manage stressful situations.
There is no one single way to incorporate mindfulness into therapy. Often, clients join their peers in a group session. During this session, clients can pursue new forms of mindfulness.
This could include keeping a journal and writing down any feelings that they experience on a given day. Alternatively, it could mean learning how to meditate or practice yoga. Meditation can be done alone, in a group, outside, on the floor, or in bed. Regardless of where a person practices it, it’s just about clearing the mind, assessing the situation, and taking rational stock of your life and what’s going on in the moment.
