Mindfulness Meditation Worksheet

When confronted with a difficult situation or an uncomfortable feeling that is not easily resolved, clients can fall into a pattern of ruminating over the discomfort. Oftentimes, the ruminating thoughts cause a sense of urgency to resolve an issue or find a solution to help you feel better. With that sense of urgency, it is hard to take time and space to calm down before considering how to respond to stressors.

As we move through life, we learn that sometimes it is not easy to find a solution or relief from stress. Sometimes we need to deal with prolonged and uncomfortable circumstances that we have little control to influence.

In situations like this, it is important to have a set of skills and strategies to cope with the stress and discomfort in the moment.
