Mindfulness of thoughts allows you to be aware of a thought or strong emotion as a kind of a storm in the mind or an event in awareness. Once you see it as an event or a storm, it no longer has the same power over you. Depression, which is a major concern for patients, is to a very large degree a disease of disregulated thinking. there’s a lot of evidence that mindfulness can actually help you develop a whole different relationship with the stream of negative thoughts called depressive rumination. Mindfulness has profound health impli- cations for depression and also for anxiety disorders. SuSAn BAuER-Wu: it’s important to emphasize that noticing negative thoughts through mindfulness is not merely a passive process. noticing the thoughts allows you to take action. You gain the insight and then you can do something about it. JOn KABAt-Zinn: Yes. the real meditation practice is your life and how you conduct it from moment to moment. Mindfulness helps you to take wise and discerning action, which is vitally im- portant if you want to participate in your own healing process. What role can mindfulness play in prevention? SuSAn BAuER-Wu: i see three overarching areas where mind- fulness aids in prevention: stress reduction, early diagnosis, and making healthy lifestyle choices.
