Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an eight week program that uses a variety of mindfulness practices to reduce stress levels and experience of negative emotion, and to raise self-control, resilience and experience of positive emotion.
MBSR was created in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD as a way to treat patients at the University of Massacheutus Hospital who were recurring patients and for whom traditional treatments were seemingly ineffective.
Since that time MBSR has become the most scientifically validated mindfulness based intervention, with over 4000 mentions on online medical aggregator PubMed and is offered for treatment at over 700 hospitals, clinics and medical centers across the world.
Through employing the various mindfulness techniques offered in the course MBSR has been proven scientifically to help reduce symptoms associated with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, fatigue, grief, headaches, and sleep problems.
Meddit offers a 100% free application for following the 8 week program of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. When you hit the ‘Start Now’ button you will be enrolled in the course and given instructions to follow daily for the next 56 days.
Using the app you can also track your happiness, anxiety, depression, self control and energy levels both before and after you meditate allowing you to validate for yourself the positive effects the practices of MBSR as administered through this application are having for you.
As the app creator I hope this completely free service can help you as it has helped myself and the other users on this platform. I wish you the best of look in your own journey and completion of the MBSR program. Enjoy!
