It is truly exciting to me that the U.S. Marines is studying mindfulness. I’ve long been concerned about the post traumatic stress that so many of our soldiers live with. Mindfulness hypnosis is about mental preparation to better handle stress. When you use self hypnosis mindfulness you can regulate your own stress levels before they lead to problem behavior. Hypnosis for mindfulness has been taught at the Seattle hypnosis with Roger Moore since 1996.
Marines studying mindfulness-based training
Associated Press, January 19, 2013, CAMP PENDLETON, Calif.: The U.S. Marine Corps, known for turning out some of the military’s toughest warriors, is studying how to make its troops even tougher through meditative practices, yoga-type stretching and exercises based on mindfulness.
Marine Corps officials say they will build a curriculum that would integrate mindfulness-based techniques into their training if they see positive results from a pilot project. Mindfulness is a Buddhist-inspired concept that emphasizes active attention on the moment to keep the mind in the present.
Facing a record suicide rate and thousands of veterans seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress, the military has been searching for ways to reduce strains on service members burdened with more than a decade of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Marine Corps officials are testing a series of brain calming exercises called “Mindfulness-Based Mind Fitness Training” that they believe could enhance the performance of troops, who are under mounting pressures from long deployments and looming budget cuts expected to slim down forces.
This is not tied to any religious practice. This is about mental preparation to better handle stress.”
The idea is to give Marines a tool so they can regulate their own stress levels before they lead to problem behavior: “We have doctors, counselors, behavioral health scientists, all sorts of people to get help for Marines who have exhibited stress type symptoms but what can we do before that happens? How do we armor Marines up so they are capable of handling stress?”
While teaching troops to shoot makes them a better warfighter, teaching mindfulness makes them a better person by helping them to decompress, which could have lasting effects. As we see the data supports it, it makes perfect sense that this is what we should be doing. It’s like doing pushups for the brain.
Mindfulness hypnosis is what the U.S. Marines call “Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training” or “M-Fit”. Hypnosis mindfulness training can help you decompress throughout your day to relieve stress allowing you to be more effective, more productive and more compassionate.
If you have experienced post traumatic stress, mindfulness hypnosis training can help create mental and emotional peace.
