Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program that teaches ancient meditative practices, such as breathing and body-awareness, as well as attention to daily activities to help manage stress, anxiety, depression and chronic pain. The program uses sensory experience to ground one’s awareness in the present moment, regardless of whether the experience is pleasant, unpleasant or neutral. This present-moment attention reduces the anxiety and stress fueled by discursive thinking (worrying, planning, etc.) and can facilitate deep acceptance and contentment with life as it is.
