Yesterday was my first attendance at the MCBT course - Mindful Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - run by our local Psychology. It has been tailored for those with long term neurological conditions but I am posting here as it really doesn’t matter what you suffer from - it helps you cope!
Although I have practised Mindfulness for some time - a bit like diet - it is a discipline which only helps when you stick with it and having a structure and support and ‘homework’ makes it a priority whereas it is just too easy to find something more ‘important’ to do.
Our homework this week is daily body scan & choosing one daily activity to practice Mindfulness.
I am so encouraged that mainstream Psychology is not only endorsing Mindfulness but actively researching and organising such classes.
This is a link to the course we are following for anyone who is interested. Please note that although originally designed for depression - you don’t need to be depressed for this to help!
