Mindfulness Techniques May Help You Reduce Stress

What is Mindfulness?


"Stress and anxiety are daily facts of life for many people, and running or working in a dental practice can be particularly stressful. Mindfulness, defined as non-judgmental, moment to moment awareness, has been shown to be an effective stress reduction practice.


A 2011 study published in Clinical Psychology Review concluded that the practice of mindfulness “brings about various positive psychological effects, including increased subjective well-being, reduced psychological symptoms and emotional reactivity, and improved behavioral regulation.”


To assist dental professionals, Dr. Mark Abramson worked with the ADA Practice Management team to develop a series of videos on mindfulness. These videos aim to help dental professionals, staff and patients create a more healthy and happy work environment."
