Mindfulness is a form of therapy that utilizes meditation and breathing exercises to help people gain control over their emotions in stressful situations to avoid negative downward spirals.

Mindfulness can be performed in one-on-one of group sessions. Your therapist will often use session time to discuss mindfulness strategies, giving you insight into your own cognition and negative mental habits, as well as lead mindfulness exercises such as guided meditation and breathing.

The strategies taught in mindfulness-based therapies can be used every day to enhance your mood, restructure negative thought patterns, as well as help to prevent thoughts from spiraling downwards, which commonly leads to depressive episodes or heightened cases of anxiety.
