The practise of mindfulness is the antithesis of avoidance.
You may learn to relax more easily by practising mindfulness.
To begin, it’s a regular period of time during which you have the opportunity to relax mindfully while sitting still. Because of this, stress will not continue to build up over time. Second, you develop a heightened awareness of the processes that are taking place in your body and mind, and when you become aware of the tension building up, you pause for a few moments to let go and relax. Learning how to relax is one of the most important skills one may have in order to control anxiety and desires.
Depression is less likely to return for those who practise mindfulness.
Other research has shown that practising mindfulness can lessen the likelihood of relapsing into a major depressive episode. It is estimated that up to eighty percent of those who suffer from one episode of serious depression may have another episode in the future. It has been demonstrated that participating in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy may cut the likelihood of relapsing by 43 percent. A substantial drop in the likelihood of developing depression may be transformative for many individuals throughout the process of recovering from an addiction to substances.
