How Mindfulness Helps

Fortunately, the practice of mindfulness offers hope. Exploring our attachments and aversions with mindfulness and self-compassion, we may find the key to loosening their often painful grip on our state of mind. Mindfully attending to our moment-to-moment experience allows us to feel and observe the impulsive urge to mindlessly reach for another potato chip, play another game on our phone, or click “purchase” in our online shopping cart. Mindfulness is the first step in developing the capacity and presence of mind to choose whether or not to go along with such urges.

Mindfulness also allows us to experience a kind of spaciousness of mind that allows us to observe and explore these habitual patterns of reactivity and their underlying feeling states without being completely caught or lost in them. Over time, the practice of mindfulness helps us access a more peaceful and equanimous way of being, a sense of being okay with ourselves and comfortable in our own skin, and less in the grip of attachment and aversion.
