Mindfulness Skills

People exist, but most of the time, we don’t live. Mindfulness in DBT is conscious living, teaching us mental self-awareness and the ability to focus on our present moments without judgment. Being mindful of one’s daily existence reduces impulsive behavior and helps with emotional regulation. Mindfulness helps people achieve a state of calm despite the emotional problems and negative thoughts coursing through their minds. Being aware of such thoughts and mental states by accepting reality, mindfulness helps us face our issues rather than escape them. Acceptance of mindfulness and observation then paves the way for problem-solving to find better solutions, emotional calm, and a healthier frame of mind. Mindfulness is again divided into three subskills called “WISE MIND,” ‘WHAT,” and “HOW.”
