How mindfulness can redefine pain | Hospice

How mindfulness can redefine pain, depression, anxiety, happiness, and satisfaction in Hospice patients



We born in different environments, Conditions, and opportunities in life. Experience of every individual is different from other in many ways. For our understanding, we can consider Education, wealth, family life, friends, legacy as different forms of achievements of life. We associate our happiness with these achievements and spend time in worrying about how to achieve them. We are only happy for a short period of time after every achievement and most of our life we are worried about seeking achievement to be happy.
Mind fullness is to observe yourself in present with intention, compassion, gratefulness and without judgment. If we train our brain to observe ourselves in present and start realizing the blessings we have, we can easily tolerate daily challenges, stresses, pains and problems of the life.



Dying patients have some common challenges which are the pain, depression hopelessness. These problems can easily be handled with the help of mindfulness. Daily 30 minutes meditation When we should not have any regrets about past and worries about facing death, be with your present and pay attention to another day of your life you got, remove all negativities from your mind, wishing well for everyone and be grateful to your God.
Daily meditation with mindfulness can help dying patient to enjoy every day of the end of life phase, help to reduce pain, worries and depression problems. It helps to be happy and satisfied with the existing situation.  We all must die one day but we do not train ourselves for that phase which is a  reality and greatest truth of the life.
