Some of our visits to our Outpatient Mental Health Clinic in Baltimore, Maryland are attributed to anxiety disorders. Practices like mindfulness may help you reframe and concentrate your attention when you’re feeling nervous.
Mindfulness refers to a condition of nonjudgmental awareness in which one may observe one’s internal and external experiences without being overwhelmed by either. Mental Health Professionals point out the benefits of practicing mindfulness include:
- Improved Physical Health
Researchers have shown that there are several ways in which practicing mindfulness might benefit one’s physical well-being. It may relieve stress, manage heart disease, decrease blood pressure, lessen chronic pain, enhance sleep, and soothe gastrointestinal issues.
- Develop Deep Social Connections
By concentrating on the now, individuals who practice mindfulness are less prone to worry about the future or lament the past, are less focused on achievement and self-esteem and may build deeper relationships with others.
- Improved Mental Health
Depression, drug addiction, eating disorders, marital strife, anxiety disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder are just some of the conditions that mindfulness meditation has been shown to help as shown in a patient’s Behavioral Health Diagnosis.
Mindfulness may be practiced in a variety of ways, but ultimately all of them aim to help you relax more deeply while maintaining a heightened level of awareness. This helps bring one’s attention back to the here and now. Meditation is at the core of any mindfulness practice.
