A type of mindfulness meditation has a moderate to large positive impact on the mental health of women affected by breast cancer, a recent analysis published in Psycho-Oncology suggests.
Researchers examined data from several published studies to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)—a kind of focused, non-judgmental attention on the present—at reducing stress, anxiety, and depression in persons diagnosed with breast cancer.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression or stress, MBSR may be a practice worth trying. Talk with your healthcare providers to learn how you can get involved in a MBSR program during or after your treatment for breast cancer.
