Semi-random comments, sparked off by various conversations I have had recently and by another interesting post at Lake Cocytus.
The Mindful Way Through Depression is one of the most helpful books I have read. I read it when anxiety, rather than depression, was uppermost in my own mental (ill) health, and keep returning to it. I wish I did so more often than I am doing.
DBT (which seems to incorporate a lot which is based on mindfulness) may be (don't quote me!) largely aimed at people with Borderline Personality Disorder, but has a lot in it for "the rest of us" too.
I'm working (slowly!) on being more mindful in everyday things, to try to incorporate it into what I am already doing rather than tacking it on as an afterthought or addition. That's helping me to be more grounded. That in turn helps me to look at (and cope better with) what is currently happening rather than what has happened in the past or might happen in the future.
I'm a work in progress and the above statement may become temporarily inaccurate at various points.
Accepting where I am now (in whatever state I am in) and what is going on now helps me to be more accepting of myself as a person.
I wish there were more mindfulness stress reduction courses available, particularly for those of us with mental health issues. My local Day Resource Centre is running one soon - but unfortunately it is in the day, while I am at work. Much as I wish he would, I think it highly improbable that my boss will give me time off to attend it - and as a teacher I can't just ask for it as holiday!
