Instant Mindfulness

Mindfulness Videos
It seems like 'instant' and 'mindfulness' should not go together. But the purpose of practicing Mindfulness is so that ultimately, no matter what happens in your life, you have a way to become grounded. It can help you to break your state of mind, which is the first step to 'wise mind.'
Most of the videos are mine (except as posted) and I will continue to add more when they are ready.

About the YouTube Videos
Mindfulness is not necessarily 'meditation,' although it can be. Mindfulness is more of an acute awareness of the moment. DBT encourages accepting reality rather than hiding from it (except in those cases in which hiding IS the most effective way to distract from a crisis).

I've broken down these links into relaxation, affirmation, or mindfulness videos, and some of them overlap.**
