How Mindfulness Can Help Ease Recession Worries

People can despair when times are hard. Sometimes we develop a belief that things will never get better, and that we are trapped in an unhappy life.

This can especially true for those in negative equity and living with reduced income. While financial hardship is an objective fact, the negativity that follows may exaggerate the situation. Mindfulness can help us all live more in the present and dwell less on past mistakes or future worries. After all, in a very real sense, now is all that exists. The past is gone and future has not happened yet. That is more than a cliché for those who practice mindfulness. How to do that? Read a book such as Jon Kabat-Zinn’s, Full Catastrophe Living. Take up meditation and if guidance is needed, consider some counselling also.
