Mindfulness is a fantastic tool. I also incorperate music with in my day to encorage relaxation. Keep resceaching and talking as you find what works you or your husband may be a little different. It helps me live in the moment and yes breathing is a major part of Mindfulness. Welcome to the forum.

Just wanted to say hi and see how things are going. I thought you might like to take a look at these 2 resources - Mindfulness.org has some great resources on Minfulness on it - have a look here. Also MindHealthConnect has a great page and some really good stuff on mindfulness as well. Find them here.
Linmerc, I hope this helps,

I think i read in the paper where there was an article on it that it is 'stopping every thought at the gateway or something' when you think something which when you are stressed is like every second! i have tried it and it is amazing how your body relaxes when you refuse to let any thought enter your inner sanctum. it requires a peaceful place to sit, close your eyes and stop the thoughts! something like that anyway. i think my support group ARAFMI has workshops for it but i haven't enquired yet. must do that. good luck.

What a great discussion starter. Mindfulness is a bit of a trend at the moment and it can be hard to really understand what we mean when we tlak about mindfulness in the mental health space. How has your husband been going with mindfulness @Linmerc?
Has anybody else use mindfulness in recovery before? What do you like? What do you dislike? How have you integrated it into your recovery and self care.
Look forward to the discussion 🌻
