Our lives are full of routine things that we don't even give much thought about. We run on ten cups of coffee and maybe even smoke to help us get through the day. We are on the go constantly, planning scheduled activities for our families, children, and aging parents. Doctors appointments, jobs, soccer practice and all of the other daily tasks, get done in autopilot with out you even noticing. All this stress could be causing some of the health issues you may be suffering.
The trick is according to Dr. Patricia Normand MD assistant professor at Rush departments of preventive Medicine,and director of Mindful Life Program lead the stress reduction courses at Rush. Dr. Normand states that, Mindfulness is the opposite of autopilot.
Dr. Normand teaches her students that in order to reduce stress, they need to focus on their breathing. You don't have to do it with your eyes close, you can do it anywhere, when that stressful feeling arises. Put your attention on your breathing. One breath, two, or ten. What happens is you brain can only focus on one thing at a time, according to Dr. Normand.
