Do you practice mindfulness?  Here’s an interesting piece questioning the evidence that it is effective.  Here’s how I think about it: mindfulness is an emotion-focused coping strategy (one that tries to help us escape or modify our emotions in the moment); evidence suggest these strategies can be helpful when we face a situation that cannot be changed.  When we face a situation that CAN potentially be changed, then problem-focused coping strategies (ones that actively prepare to address, and address the problem) may be more effective.
