MS & Mindfulness

Posted by @hopeful33250, Aug 3, 2017

To all who deal with MS.

I wanted you to have an opportunity to see this article written by Amit Sood, M.D, who is an outstanding author and psychiatrist at Mayo Clinic. He is a good friend to those of us dealing with chronic illness. I encourage you to take a look at his article and comment on it if you like,

Please let us know if you have practiced mindfulness and what your experiences have been.

Hello @hopeful33250. Thank you for pointing me to this article. I didn’t know they had a term for it. I tell people that if they leave there reactions out for a while and try to look at things as third party it could help them learn and possibly find solutions to there situation or symptoms. This with a life long positive out look have help with keeping stress down. Thus I have more days to enjoy and less days of self pity and blues. I hope others read it and get something from it. PS. This applies to all illnesses and situations in life.

I appreciate your feedback! I like the thought of looking at things as a third-party. That is a good concept.

Another approach to mindfulness is ACT, by Russell Harris. He wrote “The Happiness Trap”. My therapist gave me an overview of the concept last week. It has some good recommendations or observations that add to the mindfulness therapy.

Dear Jim @jimhd

I’ll have to look into that. I appreciate your mentioning it.

Has anyone else heard about ACT or “The Happiness Trap”?

Teresa, I wasn’t home when I mentioned ACT. It stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. The article is from Psychotherapy in Australia, August 2006.
