Mindfulness is using your five senses to bring you back to the present moment. It's a practice that you can use daily, and the more you try it, the better at it you will become. As you do, you will see many of these benefits show up in your life. Do you practice mindfulness? How have you seen it benefit your life?
Some days or weeks might be harder than others, but that doesn't mean that your healing is limited or that you are not growing. Setbacks don’t have to derail your hard-earned progress. Although it’s hard to see while you’re in the middle of the struggle, they can lead you to greater healing in the long-run. How do you make an effort to be gentle with yourself when it feels like your healing journey is progressing slowly or not at all?
