One of the ways in which mindfulness might help treat depression is by improving the ability of practitioners to control their emotions. Instead of resisting bad feelings, one can learn to step back, identify them, and then accept them with the help of a practice like mindfulness. As a result, depression is simpler to cope with and manage for people who practice mindfulness.
Mindfulness meditation appears to cultivate the ability to observe one’s own thoughts and feelings, which disengages pre-existing neural pathways and allows new information to be incorporated in a fresh way. Additionally, meditation engages the part of the brain that is involved with more adaptive reactions in stressful or unfavourable situations. It’s easier to get back to where you were before you became irritated when this area is active.
Help focus attention and reduce distraction
The ability to focus for lengthy periods of time may be improved by meditation. Many studies have demonstrated that even people who have never meditated before can benefit from the early effects of a brief meditation on their attention span.
