Using mindfulness to unpick old habits

How mindfulness helps us overcome self-defeating thoughts

In our mindfulness courses we talk about how we often misperceive things (partly because of the biases that we develop over a lifetime and partly because of our emotional state). 

Rather than viewing what is actually in front of us we often see the world through a prism of past experiences.  We replay events again and again and react in habitual ways. It’s as though we are actors playing a part and we are not allowed to deviate from the script.
