    that sounds quite interesting, how you finding it? obviously your feeling a bit low at the moment, but you finding it interesting? whats the name of it if you dont mind me asking?

    personally i could never really do the meditation very well, but i never put in the practise really, getting up half hour early before i went to work to meditate didnt really appeal tbh.

    DBT, its really for borderline patients (not something I have ever been diagnosed with) but it has had good results with depression too.

    Generally I think its really good, and if this is just a blip, which I do hope it is, I will f-ing love it! I think everyone could benefit from mindfulness and some of the other techniques, I will certainly teach it to my kids from a very young age.

    You can meditate on the way to work, you can do it in the shower, while you are brushing your teeth, look into mindfulness mate. Doesn’t need to be all that lotus position hour at a time stuff. Its effectively just a high level of non judgemental awareness. (well thats how I understand it, its new to me too)

    “The first component involves the self-regulation of attention so that it is maintained on immediate experience, thereby allowing for increased recognition of mental events in the present moment. The second component involves adopting a particular orientation toward one’s experiences in the present moment, an orientation that is characterized by curiosity, openness, and acceptance.”

    If you look at from a psychological perspective rather than the Buddhist it cuts out a lot of the crap in my personal opinion.
