Mindfulness at school reduces likelihood of depression

Recent studies have shown that teaching mindfulness at school reduces the likelihood of depression related symptoms in adolescents.

Mindfulness training – we hear a lot about it these days. Mindfulness is officially taught in psychology courses now, and gaining popular support in a variety of communities and cultures. Incorporating mindfulness into our public schools would be an excellent next step for this country.┬áRecent studies (LINK) have shown that teaching mindfulness at school reduces the likelihood of depression related symptoms in adolescents.

This makes sense if you understand that depression is often the result of negative downward spiral thinking about past events. By remaining focused on the present moment, which is what mindfulness is, the self-defeating pull of depression can be avoided.

Hypnosis is an excellent tool that you can use to train, or condition, your mind to stay focused on the present moment. Whether you use self-hypnosis or listen to hypnosis recordings prepared by a professional hypnotherapist, such as myself at Intuitive Hypnosis, you can successfully reduce the likelihood of experiencing depression related symptoms regardless of your life situation.

There are many options available when it comes to mindfulness training, each with the same result in mind – to be at peace with what is, to remain focused on the present moment, and learn to accept. Hypnosis can help you develop that discipline, and maintain the peace of mind that comes with staying present. Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did!
