I have a few problem with mindfulness for a long time

Mostly because I 'm a stubborn rebel who don't like to be told what to do, but also because It look like another example of the noble savage fallacy

Use that 10 000 year old Asian technique to solve all modern problem. May be it work, but I dont care, because the packaging is a romanticized mess, with awful implication : racism, magical thinking, self-help as consumerism and according to the video, social blindness

for kantos

    Ya know, a given circumstance catches you off guard, so you:

       1. Take a breath to relax

       2. Evaluate how you got there

       3. Evaluate where you want to go

       4. Take action

       5. Profit

You seems to practice CBT, and it make a lot more sense than meditation

That's the model, for sure. My understanding of mindfulness was it's use as a subset of CBT.

- Zoom out and take inventory (Step 1 and 2: Mindfulness)

- Take a new path (Step 3 thru 5: the rest of CBT)
