Thread: New here - Don't know whether to see my GP

    Thanks, I will definitely go into it with an open mind. I'm with you on the mindfulness Suzi. I did six months of online treatment on addiction (not drugs or alcohol, more a compulsive thing) and that's where I started meditating. I went into it reluctantly at first because of my preconceptions but boy was I wrong! It opened a whole new world to me in regards to being able to focus and rein in my thoughts before they lead me down the wrong path.

    I don't meditate as much at the moment but the effects of doing it for six months everyday mean I'm more aware of my thoughts now even if I've not managed to do it religiously. I learnt a few good tools on that course and although it acknowledged the past it was very much focused on the now and future so I'm definitely open to learning more tools for the box Paula.

    Even doing a couple of body scans might help? Maybe try to get back into it a little? I'm so glad that you found it useful!

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Yep, it certainly helped with focus and my addictive behaviours but, for me, not so much the cycle of low moods. I do need to keep doing it though to keep me in check! I'll do some today!

    That's the trick, to remember to keep on using those skills....
