Jennifer  “ When I started the class, I wasn’t sleeping for weeks which caused me to feel anxious. Despite being very active and generally optimistic, I shut down, stopped eating, lost weight and became depressed. I felt helpless because my daughter was struggling with depression and I didn’t know how to help her.  I was taking medication and going to counseling, but nothing worked. This class gave me the tools I needed to live in the present moment. I stopped spending so much time living in the future and making up stories in my mind about my life that weren’t true. By the end of the course I was sleeping well and let go of worry and depression. I have referred many of my friends to MBSR and all of them have loved the class!”

How Mindfulness, Meditation and Counseling Work Together in Charlotte NC

Neural pathways consist of neurons connecting to different areas of the brain. Through repetition and practice, these pathways are strengthened, forming habits. When the mind is conditioned to overthink and stress, these patterns become habitual. However, mindfulness meditation rewires the brain to perceive thoughts differently. It helps individual focus, relax, and reduce ruminations about the past.

Combining mindfulness, meditation, and counseling offers a holistic approach to mental health. Counseling in Charlotte, NC, supports this transformation by providing personalized strategies to manage stress and anxiety. Mindfuness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) improves overall well-being and health, even for those without medical issues. As defined by the World Health Organization, 'Health is a state of complex physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' Embracing these practices can lead to a more balanced and fulfilling life.
