Reducing Stress during the Workday with Mindfulness

Reducing Stress during the Workday with Mindfulness

Have you ever been driving and realized you had stopped paying attention? It is not uncommon for us to go on autopilot throughout our day. Our attention frequently wanders to the past or future, while paying attention to the present may feel strange, uncomfortable, or even impossible.

Managing Anxiety in the Wake of Tragedy

Managing Anxiety in the Wake of Tragedy

Some experts worry that our non-stop exposure to tragedy in the news is taking its toll by causing undue, elevated anxiety for many of us. It is suggested that we can benefit by being more selective in how much information we allow ourselves to access. Though it is important to stay informed about the events of the world, it’s also just as important to know how to care for ourselves when it comes to things that provoke anxiety or pain, even when we are not directly affected.

Dealing with Grief

The loss of a loved one due to death or separation is something everyone experiences at some point in their life. These losses often cause grief, which is associated with feelings of sadness, longing, guilt, or regret. When a person’s grief-related thoughts, behaviors, or emotions are very distressing, don’t improve with time, or make it difficult to manage daily work and living, a psychotherapist may be able to provide assistance and will tailor treatment to your specific needs.

As our attention frequently wanders to the past or future, paying attention to the present may feel strange, uncomfortable, or even impossible. Daily stress may contribute to this disconnection from the present, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, distant, easily distracted, irritable, or like we’re “sleep-walking” through life.
