Mental Health Tips

Mindful Breathing

 We introduced “Mindfulness” on “Mental Health Tips” section of our website on Nov. 4th.
 To make it easier to practice mindfulness, the SSR made an audio clip of mindful breathing.

 Follow the audio guide to practice this mindfulness skill. 

 By practicing mindfulness skills, we can develop the ability not to be trapped in anxiety or anger. We spend a lot of time regretting the past or being anxious thinking about the future, not paying enough attention to the present moment. 
 Mindful breathing is an easy way to pay attention to what you are doing at the present moment – breathing – anywhere, at any time. It will clear your mind and improve your concentration and attention.
 In the West, companies offer mindfulness workshops during a lunch break to enhance wellbeing.

Keys are:
1.Pay attention to natural breathing
  You don’t need to put effort into breathing. Just breathe as you
  usually do. Observe the rise and fall of your chest and belly.
  Pay attention to the breath coming in and out as if you were
2.When the mind wanders…
  The mind wanders. That’s what it does. Whatever thoughts arise,
  do not deny or push them away. Just gently acknowledge their
  presence and bring your attention back to the breath. By practicing
  bringing attention back, you will be able to focus on what you are
  doing without being occupied with harmful thoughts or feelings.
