By Kacy Mixon, PhD, LMFT[Flickr, Spring Light Meditation by Hartwig HKD, CC BY-ND] Retrieved on September 17, 2015Interventions focused on mindfulness have become increasingly popular in the past two decades, and more recently there has been increasing psychotherapy research on this topic. Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism and can be described as the practice of bringing awareness to the present moment . Contemporary psychology has adopted mindfulness as a coping mechanism for dealing with difficult emotions and situations . Intervention strategies that incorporate mindfulness aim to help individuals acknowledge and respond to negative emotions and stress in ways that promote healthy adaptation to their circumstances. Meditation is often a vehicle by which individuals are able to achieve this greater awareness.Popular MBT’s…[Flickr, Meditation mountain top by Jillian, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 17, 2015Some of the more popular mindfulness-based therapy (MBT) approaches include mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) . MBT’s are can be used with clientele struggling with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress symptoms, as well as other issues we know to be common in the military community. MBCT has been used not only as a way to reduce symptoms, but also to prevent relapse of problems. Research on MBSR has shown that its use leads to significant reduction in symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression while increasing self-esteem . There is also research that shows MBSR can reduce emotional reactivity and enhance emotion regulation in individuals struggling with social anxiety disorder . MBSR assumes that greater awareness can provide more accurate perceptions, decrease negative affect and improve coping .Effective with Professionals…As discussed in a previous post, those in helping professions are often vulnerable to the negative effects associated with helping others in distress. Professionals providing services to military families often hear painful stories related to loss, suffering, pain, crisis, violence, and death which can take a toll on their well-being if self-care practices are not implemented. MBTs can benefit practitioners in the helping professions because it can help prevent the negative effects  associated with burnout, secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue.References Bishop, S.R., Lau, M., Shapiro, S., Carlson, L., Anderson, N.D., Carmody, J., Segal, Z.V., Abbey, S., Speca, M., Velting, D., & Devins, G.

The government on Wednesday approved leasing out of three State-owned airports — Ahmedabad, Lucknow and Mangaluru — to Adani Enterprises Limited through a public- private partnership. In February, Adani Enterprises emerged as the winning bidder for six airports bid out by the Airports Authority of India. With the Union Cabinet approving leasing of only three of them, uncertainty hangs over the Guwahati, Thiruvananthapuram and Jaipur airports.It is learnt that the Ministry of Civil Aviation had sent a proposal for all the six airports to the Cabinet. The bids expire on July 30, though a senior AAI official said their validity could be extended.Following the Cabinet’s nod, the AAI is expected to issue a Letter of Intent for each of the three airports to the Adani Enterprises after which a joint measurement of land and assets will be carried out.The other three airports are embroiled in controversy. In March, the Kerala government filed a writ petition in the High Court challenging AAI’s proposal to award the Thiruvananthapuram airport to Adani Enterprises instead of the Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation Ltd (KSIDC), as the State government had contributed to the acquisition of land for the airport. Similarly, a group of prominent citizens dragged the AAI to the Guahati High Court in February opposing its decision to privatise the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi international airport in Guwahati.The Congress-led government in Rajasthan, too, has objected to the Jaipur airport being awarded to Adani on the grounds that the State government was not consulted during the bidding process.

Salman Khan’s Bharat is among the most anticipated films of the year. The film will chronicle Salman’s journey from the age of 18 to 70 and the actor will be seen sporting five different looks in the film.Though the actor has done many roles that required physical transformation in the past (Sultan, anyone?), the actor says that portraying Bharat on the big screen was a bit more difficult for him.Talking to Hindustan Times, the actor said, “Right now, I am shooting for the third installment of the Dabangg franchise, which is a prequel. Then, Bharat is releasing, which is a journey from the age of nine to 27 to 35 to 45 to 70. So I am playing all those age groups in Bharat.”He added, “You saw that in Sultan (2016), too. The amount of work that went into it is 10 times more than what I put in any other film. Because you need to lose weight to look a certain way and then you need to put on that weight. And all this always has to be done in a short span of time. Earlier, it was easier, but now, of course it’s tougher.”Talking about how he chooses his films, he said, “It’s always the script. It has always been that way. When the audience walks out of the theatre, they should feel that they want a boyfriend like my character, or a son like that or a husband. Every actor should see the film in totality from the audience’s perspective.”advertisementBharat is all set to hit the theatres on Eid.Also See | Bharat trailer out.

Guardiola hails ‘incredible’ Man City with five-goal rout of Atalantaby Freddie Taylor3 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePep Guardiola labelled Manchester City’s 5-1 win over Atalanta as “incredible”.The game was tightly balanced with City holding onto a 2-1 at half-time, thanks to a double from Sergio Aguero.But the Italians couldn’t hold off an avalanche in the second-half, with Raheem Sterling scoring an incredible hat-trick.The only negatives for City on what was a magical night at the Etihad was an injury to Rodri and red-card for Phil Foden.Speaking after the game, Guardiola told BT Sport: “It was a really good result. The way Atalanta played created that. It was man to man all over the stadium, it was not comfortable, we’re not used to playing against these teams.”It was no surprise Atalanta finished third last season in Italy and even this season, they’re playing well so it’s an incredible result. It’s three more points. One more win and we’ll be in the next stage.”Raheem Sterling was brilliant. He could have scored one more. Not just with the ball, without the ball, he helps us a lot.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say

The Ohio State men’s and women’s track and field teams participated in the Buckeye Tune-up Friday at OSU’s French Field House, their final meet prior to the Big Ten Indoor Championship meet.OSU athletes won seven of the 17 individual events contested for each gender. The men’s and women’s teams each had a two-event winner. Redshirt senior distance runner Adam Green took first place in the men’s mile run with a time of 4:11.25, and followed that with a winning time of 8:28.33 in the 3,000-meter run. On the women’s side, senior sprinter Christina Manning finished first in the 60-meter dash in 7.28 seconds, then won the 60-meter hurdles in 8.11 seconds.In addition to the event winners, two OSU athletes met automatic qualifying standards for the NCAA Division I Championship in the weight throw. Redshirt senior Matt DeChant met the mark with a throw of 70 feet, 9 1/4 inches, while fellow senior Max Mays also qualified with a throw of 70 feet, 7 inches. Ashland University’s senior Ryan Loughney won the men’s weight throw with a throw of 71 feet, 4 inches.While the Buckeye Tune-up served as a venue for some of the OSU athletes to perform, others rested this week in preparation for the Big Ten Indoor Championships.“Some people needed rest and some people need work,” said Karen Dennis, coach of the women’s team. “(Some athletes were) really getting geared up emotionally for Big Tens next weekend.”Although he won two events, Green said the meet “was more of a training day.”Heading into the conference championship meet, there is certainly pressure on the women’s track and field team, as they are the defending champions of the Big Ten Indoor Championship. Two women’s athletes also have individual conference titles to defend — Manning was last year’s Big Ten champion in the 60-meter hurdles, while senior sprinter Madison McNary took first place in the 60-meter dash.“As defending champions, we want to go defend our title, but we are also realistic in knowing that we have to expect people to want to bump us off,” Dennis said. “Sprinters and hurdlers all have to make it back to the finals.”The men’s track and field team finished fifth at last year’s Big Ten Indoor Championships, but their sights are set on greater accomplishments in 2012.Redshirt junior Heath Nickles, who cleared a height of 16 feet, 11 1/2 inches and won the Buckeye Tune-up pole vault, said the team is in it to win it.“We won’t accept anything else,” he said.Nickles said his individual goals for this weekend are to win the heptathlon and pole vault, stressing the importance of scoring 10 points for the team in each event.Coach Robert Gary said Nebraska is the team to beat in the Big Ten. He said he believes in his team’s chances to win, because the team “doesn’t bring anybody to the Big Ten meet just to get the experience of getting their butts kicked.”Senior sprinter Thomas Murdaugh and redshirt junior distance runner Cory Leslie did not compete in Friday’s meet, but will be crucial to the team’s success this weekend. Murdaugh will be attempting to defend his conference title from last year in the 400-meter dash. Leslie finished fourth in the mile run at last year’s meet, but he has been running faster times this season, including a mile time of 3:56.85 at the Penn State National Invitational which not only set a school record, but also met the mark to automatically qualify for the NCAA Division I Championship meet.The quest to bring the Big Ten Indoor Championships title back to OSU begins Feb. 24, in Lincoln, Neb. The meet concludes Saturday.
