Does Mindfulness Help Ease Recurrent Depression


3

What is Mindfulness? ● Mindfulness is the ability to be fully aware of where we are and what we are doing. ● With Mindfulness we learn that we can recognize negative thoughts, but at the same time learn how to disengage from them. ● Your primary care physician can help with your stress management treatment by recommending Mindfulness as a way to deal with depression.


4

Basics of Mindfulness ● Time: Devote some time each day for practice. ● Observance: Be quiet and observe what is happening in the present moment. ● No Judgment: Mentally note your thoughts and then just let them go. Don't judge yourself. ● Present Moment: Mindfulness is about learning how to bring yourself back to the present.


5

What can Mindfulness do to help ease Depression? ● The whole point of mindfulness is to practice being non-judgmental. ● Your family physician will tell you that your feelings are not facts. ● Talk to your family physician about ways to deal with stress management so that you, or someone you love, can avoid another depressive episode.

OUR KEY PHILOSOPHY

Take the time to listen.

What I try and do with every patient I see, in the first few minutes, is just let them say what’s on their mind and there’s a lot of study that show we don’t do that enough in medicine. These are small things that you can’t pick up really from just filling out a form. That’s why it’s really important to spend time, talking and listening and building that relationship.

~ Dr. Arun Villivalam, M.D.
