Resilience Therapy Workshop
While thinking and problem solving are useful, excessive rumination is an avoidance strategy just like browsing the internet and watching TV can be. With rumination we can spend time in a mental reality that seems real, try to solve the imagined version of our problems and often get nowhere, feeling disempowered as a result. Mindfulness is an act of personal empowerment that can help us understand and hopefully enjoy the parts of reality that may seem cold or uncomfortable at first.
