Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the ability to be present, to rest in the here and now, fully engaged with whatever we’re doing in the moment. 

 

 

Practicing mindfulness, a soothing breathing technique rooted in Buddhism, can help you deal with the emotional and physical strains caused by your fibromyalgia syndrome.

Mindfulness can be used in fibromyalgia therapy. It is the act of becoming aware of the moment, and not thinking about your past, or worrying about the future. Mindfulness helps you direct your attention to the present and your surroundings at the moment. It helps you take your mind off stressful issues that may happen in the future and prevents you from thinking of the troubles of yesterday.
