Video: How Mindfulness Secrets Can Help You Overcome Depression

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be aware that mindfulness exercises are becoming increasingly popular. Experts are recommending them for everything from reducing stress to helping yourself get into the right mental space to make a dramatic change in your life.

Further, neurological studies are repeatedly showing that regularly practicing mindfulness routines actually transforms certain parts of the brain—parts that make you more capable of dealing with challenges and regulating your emotions.

However, even if you are already pretty familiar with mindfulness, you may not have considered it as a possible way to tackle the difficulties associated with depression—and this potential connection is precisely the subject of the following TEDx talk. Zindel Segal is here to explain how you can use the power of mindful approaches to depression in order to overcome low mood and transform your life.

An author of a critically acclaimed book on the subject and the co-developer of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy approaches that relate meditation to depression, Segal is uniquely placed to explain why his ideas might work for you and how you can begin to use them for yourself.

Pin ItThis talk isn’t just for people who suffer from depression, either—it’s of use to anyone who wants to learn more about the incredible effectiveness of mindfulness and anyone who has ever wanted to have more control over their own more difficult moods.

At eighteen minutes long, it’s perfect viewing for a lunch break or commute, and will leave you with a whole new picture of how to tackle mood disturbances.
