How will mindfulness help me with stress?
Stressful things happen and often we can’t do very much about them. However, we can do something about the way we deal with them.
We often cause ourselves extra stress by reacting to those experiences, with unhelpful thoughts, feelings and judgements. These kinds of reactions tend to escalate – one thought leading to others, leading to more feelings, leading to more judgements, leading to more thoughts …etc. Before you know it you’re drowning in a sea of despair!
Mindfulness helps us to deal with stressful situations by continually coming back to our direct experience in the present moment. OK, so you might still be under pressure to get that job done, or you may still be stuck in that traffic jam, or the weather may be awful (again!), but that’s all. You don’t have to cope with all the extra unhelpful thoughts and feelings that our minds tend to throw up.
Mindfulness also helps by allowing us to tap into our own inner resources. This happens naturally through meditation and mindful movement, where we develop a still serenity, from where our problems are much easier to deal with. Mindfulness practice doesn’t get rid of problems – while we’re alive we’ll always have problems – it helps us to change our relationship with them.

I work and live in East London. Meditation and mindfulness practice have greatly influenced my life and it is one of my passions to share the benefits of mindfulness practice with others.
I follow the Good Practice Guidelines set out by the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations.
I have recently attended a 6-week mindfulness course at Kew Gardens with Karen. Before this, I had been going through a stressful period feeling difficulty in coping with life. Karen’s positive guidance and careful explanation of the practice of mindfulness opened up new aspects and ways of thinking for me. Karen was inspirational. She has an instinctive understanding of the needs of all her students and has helped me to change my way of thinking and feeling about myself and life for which she has my gratitude. – Shirley Read, Surrey
