Mindfulness Approach Backed By Research

by Harris Jensen, MD
Editor, Good Day Journal

Managing stress by taking a good, long walk is about as American as apple pie.  I mean, Henry David Thoreau extolled the virtues of a walk in nature in his essary "Walking," 150 years ago.

But you can get more out of a walk by developing your powers of mindfulness.

Studies have shown mindfulness based cognitive behavior therapy does a great job helping people manage stress.  I have combined those principles, based on accepting things as they are, and rational problem solving, with the tradition of walking to relieve stress.

I call my CD, "Walking Meditation."

Listen to chapter one below, by clicking attachments and then clicking the Walking Meditation file and listening to it.  It's free!  In the future I'll list the CD on iTunes.
