In his article “One Approach to Apply Immediately When Stress is Affecting Your Professional and Personal Life!“, Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D. writes :
“Mindfulness is the ability to intentionally paying attention to the present moment without our filters of judgment (e.g., good/bad, right/wrong, fair/unfair).
“In other words, it is the art of cultivating the ability to be in control of our own minds instead of our minds being in control of us. Some actually say it is the training for advanced living.
“In an age of so much distraction the old approach of time management at work is being thrown out the window in favor of attention management. Mindfulness is a practical way to get this.
“Over 250 hospitals around the country and many more around the world are using mindfulness to help people with distress from anxiety, depression, pain, and more.”
Dr. Goldstein is author of the CD program Mindful Solutions for Stress, Anxiety, and Depression, which I have used and found helpful for stress management and a complement to meditation.
