Treating you with Kindness

Mindfulness for Distress.

Often, when we are anxious, we are focused on thoughts about the future.
When we are depressed, we may be focused on thoughts about the past.
When we bring our focus back to the present moment, we may notice that we are actually ok, just as we are.
We are still breathing.
Things may not be exactly the way we want them to be, but we can learn to accept things the way that they are, and keep moving towards what we want.
