My Paper Topic and thesis statement:
The research in this paper will discuss the effect of Mindfulness-Based Therapy on anxiety and depression. The term mindfulness in this case refers to a series of actions or steps that leads to a mental state portrayed by non-judgemental awareness of a persons current struggle (stress or anxiety). This includes a person’s sensations, thoughts, bodily states, consciousness, and the environment around them, while encouraging openness curiosity and acceptance. (Hoffman 2010) There are three components to this type of therapy that will be researched and addressed, sitting meditation, Hatha Yoga, and body scan: a sustained mindfulness practice.
An analysis of Mindfulness-Based Therapy will reveal that the process of spiritual based therapy can be as effective in some cases, as psychotherapy methods to treat anxiety, stress and depression.
