Hi Everyone :-) New members are more than welcome to post their views too!
Hey Quirky......Thanks heaps for your support and your great post too.....You mentioned "As long as you are focussing on one thing and totally in the moment that can help you" I agree with this Quirky as having a mind that overthinks would make 'mindfulness' difficult...One set of thoughts at a time.....Good1
Hey Spitfire......Great to see you and thankyou for your valued post too! You brought up an excellent point when you mentioned "i have and still trying to stay in the present, to acknowledge the bad thoughts and to let them slide away so they do not screw me up every time they are there" You are spot on as this is the hardest part to get a handle on. I am still learning and open to any suggestions as you mentioned. Nice1 :-)
Hey Sueetties.....Always a bonus to have your input on the forums and thankyou too! I agree with you that it requires patience to have the ability to practice Mindfulness. You mentioned " I feel like more focused as it takes me to an imaginary place rather than focussing on your breath" This is spot on as when my anxiety was bad breathing techniques were non productive...yet visual or audio distractions really worked!
Without being boring...back in the 1980's my psychologists' used 'acceptance' therapy which worked very well. Once we truly accept these awful symptoms of anxiety/depression the fear dissipates making the anxious thoughts impotent and thus leaves us without the fear that triggers the anxiety in the first place
Like mindfulness...this also takes time and practise too
Thankyou everyone for helping others by posting :-)
my kind thoughts
