DBT Mindfulness Exercises (PDF)

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Mindfulness offers plenty of opportunities to slow down, relieve stress, and be fully present in the moment, and is a core principle taught in DBT. Examples like mindful walking in nature and mindful eating improve physical and emotional well-being by paying attention to body sensations and other senses. Practicing these simple mindfulness exercises daily helps increase our awareness of our thoughts and feelings.

The DBT Mindfulness Exercises PDF handout includes six exercises to help clients practice mindfulness. They can use breathing exercises like Wise Mind Breathing, Mindful Belly Breathing, and Urge Surfing to calm their minds. Meanwhile, mindful movements like Mindful Eating, Mindful Walking, and the Body Scan allow them to get into their bodies and let go of pent-up energy.

Using this handout helps kids and teens practice mindfulness, which offers many benefits like reduced stress, better emotional regulation, and enhanced focus. We recommend providing opportunities for a child or teen to integrate these exercises into their everyday routine. For instance, before having lunch, remind them to take a moment to pause, look at their food with curiosity, and take their time with each bite.

Our What Is Mindfulness In DBT and DBT Mindfulness Skills handout can be added on for more information on the DBT mindfulness skill.
