A new study finds that mindfulness meditation can be just as beneficial to patients as psychotherapy.
The study compared those who underwent cognitive-behavior therapy, a very effective technique for dealing with depression and anxiety, with those who practiced mindfulness. Both groups had significantly decreased symptoms.
This is important research because it shows that, for those who cannot afford therapy, mindfulness group therapy can be a cheaper option.
Anxiety and depression are increasing at remarkable rates and alternatives need to be explored. These are conditions that must be treated.
Consider mindfulness group therapy to address your symptoms. You deserve a better quality of life without anxiety and depression.
