Key Practices

Mindfulness and meditation practice are key tools in ACT. Mindfulness grounds us in the present moment, providing the space to watch our thoughts or emotions come and go without judgment. Through this practice, we can see how we tend to “hook” onto or “unhook” from our feelings and thoughts, often getting caught up in unhelpful patterns.

Developing the Skill of Mindfulness

t’s important to remember that mindfulness is a skill that takes time and consistent effort to develop. Like learning to play an instrument, the most important part is ongoing practice. Meditation serves as a training ground to strengthen your mindfulness muscle for use throughout daily life. There are many different mindfulness techniques available, such as focusing on your breath, body scan meditations, or mindful walking.
