I got my hands on a leaflet this week, produced by the Mental Health Foundation, that said there is a technique called “mindfulness” that is clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and involves meditation, breathing, yoga and awareness of emotions. They are campaigning to widen access to courses and resources that teach this technique, and to raise awareness of this tool that can apparently make a huge difference to many people with lives impacted by mental health issues. Their website is www.bemindful.co.uk.
Somehow I have lived in total ignorance of this whole thing, and my question is, does anyone have first hand experience of mindfulness? Did it help? Is it compatible with Christian spirituality?
