Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Full Catastrophe Living”: Commitment to Mindfulness

“The spirit of engaged commitment we ask of our patients during their eight weeks MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) is similar to that required in athletic training. The athlete who is training for a particular event doesn’t practice only when he or she feels like it-for instance only when the weather is nice, or there are other people to keep him or her company, or there is enough time to fit in a workout. The athlete trains every day, rain or shine, whether she feels good or not, whether the goal seems worth it or not on any particular day.”
