Mindfulness - A small warning

I believe in many of the mindfulness concepts, particularly about just noticing your thoughts and not judging yourself too harshly when you can't stay with your breathing.

However, for many people, sinking into a quiet place in their brain can allow memories held at bay to emerge - and flashbacks or flooding can happen. This is especially true for people (like me) who keep themselves ultra busy to avoid any random thoughts at all. Think of it as going 80 miles an hour and then suddenly shifting into park. Your transmission could be left on the pavement.

So keep yourself safe as you begin all of this.

I just read a report that suggests that exercise is THE most potent stress buster - better even than meds and longer lasting. Too bad I hate to sweat. :(
