People who worry focus on problems and potential disasters, while people who ruminate focus on regrets and mistakes. Common topics for worry and rumination include fears about interpersonal relationships, guilt, decision-making, and unsatisfied life goals. Worriers fear the future and ruminators dwell on the past, but they have one thing in common-both are unable to focus their attention to the present. What's more, excessive worry and rumination can lead to depression and generalized anxiety disorder. The Mindful Path Through Worry and Rumination helps readers end these negative, passive mental habits and take up the new habit of mindfulness. In this book, readers use a combination of Buddhist spiritual practices and proven psychological strategies to learn to let go of what they cannot control-the past and the future-and focus instead on the present. Mindfulness, daily wellness routines that can serve as healthy cognitive distractions, and behavioral goals will guide readers to more content lives free of the distress of worry and rum
