Mindfulness: A Helpful Coping Technique


Multiple Sclerosis  related image

When you speak to Carrie Sammarco, DrNP, FNP-C, MSCN, about mindfulness, her excitement about the topic is evident.
Carrie is a nurse practitioner who has been working with people who have multiple sclerosis (MS) since 1999. She is passionate about her work with MS patients and constantly strives to learn new approaches to improve their care.
A few years ago, Carrie read an article that linked mindfulness with a reduction in anxiety for people living with MS. Her immediate thought was, “how can I use this as a tool to help my patients?”
After she enrolled in a mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) course, Carrie noticed a difference in the way she approached a variety of situations in her own life. The mindfulness skills she learned inspired her to create a drop-in group focused on mindfulness, which has grown into one of the most popular programs at her MS center since its launch in 2011.
Are you interested in incorporating the power of mindfulness into your daily life or sharing this information with a loved one? If so, read on for key teachings that Carrie said benefited her and her patients.
It’s not only about MS.
