Welcome to Your MBCT Journey

Hello! You’re about to explore Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), a powerful approach that combines mindfulness practices with cognitive therapy. MBCT is designed to help you become more aware of your thoughts and feelings, so you can manage them without being overwhelmed. This worksheet will guide you through exercises to enhance your mindfulness skills, helping you to break the cycle of negative thought patterns and emotional responses.

Understanding MBCT

MBCT helps you recognize and step back from habitual, often unconscious emotional and physiological reactions to everyday events. It provides you with tools to change your relationship with your thoughts and feelings, offering a new pathway to well-being.

Benefits of MBCT

  • Reduces Stress: Learn to manage stress more effectively.
  • Decreases Anxiety and Depression: Break the cycle of anxiety and depression by changing how you relate to your experiences.
  • Enhances Emotional Regulation: Develop skills to regulate your emotions and respond to situations with choice.
  • Improves Resilience: Cultivate a greater capacity to bounce back from challenging situations.

MBCT Exercises for Daily Practice

Exercise 1: The 3-Minute Breathing Space

What You Need: Just a quiet space and a few minutes.


  • Awareness: Spend the first minute becoming aware of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. Acknowledge whatever is present without trying to change it.
  • Gathering: The second minute is focused on your breath. Notice the sensation of the breath moving in and out, anchoring your attention to the present.
  • Expanding: In the final minute, expand your awareness to encompass your whole body and the space around you. Notice any sensations, keeping a broad sense of awareness.

Exercise 2: Mindful Observation

What You Need: An object from nature (like a leaf, a flower, or a rock) or any other item.


  • Observe: Spend a few minutes observing the object. Notice its shape, color, texture, and any other qualities.
  • Curiosity: Approach this exercise with curiosity, as if you’re seeing the object for the first time.
  • Thoughts and Feelings: Notice any thoughts or feelings that arise without getting caught up in them. Gently bring your attention back to the object.

Exercise 3: Thought Awareness and Labeling

What You Need: A quiet moment and your own thoughts.


  • Notice: Pay attention to your thoughts without trying to change them. Imagine them as clouds passing in the sky.
  • Label: Gently label each thought as it arises. For example, “planning,” “worrying,” “remembering.”
  • Return to the Present: Each time you label a thought, bring your attention back to the present moment, focusing on your breath or bodily sensations.

Integrating MBCT into Your Daily Life

  • Regular Practice: Dedicate time each day for mindfulness practice, using the exercises above to cultivate awareness.
  • Mindful Routine Activities: Engage in daily activities (like brushing your teeth or washing dishes) with full awareness of the present moment.
  • Responsive Pause: When faced with challenges, take a “mindful pause” before reacting, helping you respond more thoughtfully.
  • Journaling: Keep a journal of your thoughts, feelings, and mindfulness experiences, reflecting on patterns and progress.


By incorporating MBCT exercises into your daily routine, you’ll develop a more mindful approach to life, enhancing your ability to manage thoughts and emotions effectively. Remember, the key to MBCT is consistent practice and a non-judgmental attitude toward your experiences. Embrace this journey with openness, and watch as your relationship with your mind and the world transforms, fostering a greater sense of well-being and inner peace.
