Mindfulness for Cancer Survivors
Mindfulness-based stress reduction is a consciousness discipline that is grounded in Eastern practices and focuses on awareness of the present moment. Using techniques by founder Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, it aims to teach people to deal more effectively with experience through awareness of feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. Cancer survivors learn to engage in mindfulness practices, such as body scan, simple yoga exercises, and meditation.
Substantial research has demonstrated how mindfulnessâ€“based practice improves mental and physical health and can help people cope with stress, anxiety, pain, and illness.
