Breathing Space Coping with Difficulty
Mind Fully Present
The ‘Three Steps Breathing Space coping with difficulty’ (from MBCT - Mark Williams UK), helps to cope with difficult feelings in an efficient way, using the mindful approach. With this practice we learn to hold our experience with kindness, self-compassion and non-judgment. We use the breath as an anchor and to find a steady place. The mindful approach helps to dissolve the intensity of the feelings and body sensations, it creates mind space to see more clearly and therefore choose a wiser response to deal with the situation.
