Mindfulness

Mindfulness can be cultivated through mindfulness meditation, a systematic method of focusing your attention. Mindfulness is quite simply focusing all your attention on the present moment – that’s the sights, smells, and sounds around you, as well as your thoughts, feelings, emotions – and accepting things without judgement.

It may seem simple, but ask yourself when you last saw, touched and experienced your surroundings on your commute to work. You’ll quickly notice you’re often passing through life in an effort to get somewhere, and not actually living it. Mindfulness addresses that. With practice, you can improve your relationships with yourself and with those around you. And in doing so many people who practise mindfulness find that they are less likely to get caught up in worries about the future or regrets over the past, are less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem, and are better able to form deep connections with others.

Studies have been confirming the positive impact of mindfulness on stress levels, anxiety and overall mental wellbeing for a while now. But it’s only recently that they’ve picked up on why this might be. It seems as though our worries are left behind when we focus solely on the present. We then return to them with a greater sense of perspective, and they begin to have less of an influence on our everyday life. The power of mindfulness is now so accepted it’s officially recognised by the NHS as an effective method of combating depression. What’s more, 68% of GPs think it would be beneficial for all patients to learn mindfulness, according to the mental health foundation’s be mindful report.

Managing fibromyalgia with mindfulness

Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body. As well as widespread pain, people with fibromyalgia may also have:

  • Increased sensitivity to pain
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Problems with mental processes (known as "fibro-fog") – such as problems with memory and concentration
  • Headaches
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – a digestive condition that causes stomach pain and bloating' (NHS Choices)

Fibromyalgia and mindfulness

Life with a long-term condition can be a lot to come to terms with. The NHS advises people living with fibromyalgia that although treatment is available and will ease some symptoms, they're unlikely to disappear completely, so self-management can be an important factor in living with the condition. Also, fibromyalgia can be difficult to diagnose creating feelings of uncertainty and anxiety about future health.

Managing multiple sclerosis with mindfulness

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition that can affect the brain and/or spinal cord, causing a wide range of potential symptoms, including problems with vision, arm or leg movement, sensation, or balance. It's a lifelong condition that can sometimes cause serious disability, although it can occasionally be mild. (NHS Choices)

MS is the most common condition of the central nervous system affecting young adults. 'Sclerosis' means scarring or hardening of tiny patches of tissue. 'Multiple' is added because this happens at more than one place in the brain and/or spinal cord. The damage to nerves seems to be due to the immune system mistakenly attacking the nerve coating which is made of a fatty protein called myelin. (MS Trust)

Although symptoms can be different from person to person, they include:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty walking
  • Vision problems, such as blurred vision
  • Problems controlling the bladder
  • Numbness or tingling in different parts of the body
  • Muscle stiffness and spasms
  • Problems with balance and co-ordination
  • Problems with thinking, learning and planning (NHS Choices)

Multiple sclerosis and mindfulness

Life with a long-term condition can be a lot to come to terms with and being diagnosed with MS can be an incredibly stressful experience. The NHS advises that depending on the type of MS you have, symptoms may come and go in phases, or get steadily worse over time, so self-management can be an important factor in living with the condition.

Relapses often occur without warning but are sometimes associated with a period of illness or stress. Fear and uncertainty about future health can be extremely difficult and can make living with a health condition so much worse - research has actually linked stress to increased MS activity. Furthermore, research has shown that unfortunately, 50% of MS patients suffer from depression at some point in their lives. Fortunately, however, through breathworks mindfulness' work and research, it is known that long-term conditions, such as MS do respond well to mindfulness.

Managing dizziness with mindfulness

Mindfulness can be used as a tool to help manage chronic dizziness caused by balance organ disorders other specific dizziness. Dizziness can be caused by a variety of different medical disorders. It is important that you seek the advice of your GP (or other medical professionals) if you suffer from dizziness so that a diagnosis can be made. Once this has occurred your GP will be able to tell you whether they feel that mindfulness will be useful for you.

Managing spinal cord injuries with mindfulness

The breathworks mindfulness for health course can offer numerous psychological benefits to people with spinal cord injury and their caregivers. Such education is often provided in rehabilitation settings soon after someone is diagnosed with a spinal injury, and aims to provide people with all of the relevant information they need in order to live well with spinal cord injury. The Mindfulness for Health online course offers an approach to mindfulness in the form of an eight-week course that teaches participants about the underlying principles of mindfulness, through formal mindfulness practice

For people with spinal cord injury, the mindfulness for health course was effective in reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety, pain unpleasantness, and pain catastrophizing, more so than the educational materials. For caregivers, participation in the Mindfulness for Health course facilitated improvements in symptoms of depression and anxiety and improved quality of life.
