Here's How to Use Mindfulness to Deal with Unpleasant Things
Here's psychiatrist Dr. Mark Epstein's take on mindfulness: Acknowledge stimuli and choose not to act on all your reactions. When given a choice in reacting to an unpleasant situation, take the time to look at both the positive and negative. Thinking upon the good and bad of a situation actually gives us a moment to choose which type of person we want to be in how we deal with the situation at hand. Dr. Epstein goes into detail about facing hard decisions and negativity with this interesting take on mindfulness and mental health.
