Here’s the GrabChat URL: http://grabchat.com/cache/iayx8i – not sure what happened to the table at 19:40. I’ve tried using previous GC version and editing the code several times but same effect. If anyone knows how to fix it, please go ahead! (CS)

@BillWongOT @pd2ot one thing I am really mindful about is volume control… which I can tend to say things on the loud side. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @Trio33 Can you elaborate? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:22 +0100)
@BPDFFS #occhat Mindfulness is key for me in managing my BPD, it’s the first thing I learnt to do. It teaches me about me.(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:32 +0100)
@BillWongOT @Nnikki_Duffy well… it’s 30 C here. So, it’s pretty hot, at least not as humid as previous weeks. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:08:40 +0100)

@pd2ot @Claire_OT I found it took a long period of determined practice for it to become in any way natural, but now verges on automatic #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:12:19 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD Mindfulness has helped me avoid a number of emotional crises. Being aware of my feelings and slowing down before acting help a lot. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:12:22 +0100)

@HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT would love to get to point where being mindful is more “automatic.” That’s great. Your nervous sys must be healing #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:05 +0100)

@gilliancrossley @kirstyes but beer or salt around it… to save from the snails. they will have to be mindful if they want to survive! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:14:26 +0100)

@clissa89 @BPDFFS naming and describing emotions – sounds so simple but actually can be very powerful!! #occhat #BPD (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT well… but according to my skills theory instructor, then that will become mindlessness. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:42 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot @claire_ot Can you give an example of what mindfulness in occupation looks/feels like for you? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:44 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @BillWongOT @clissa89 A huge tweetup of all of us who connect on here would be amazing. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:15:53 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @pd2ot @Claire_OT just to note, my skills theory instructor in OT school is Linda Fazio, well known in OT. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:17 +0100)
@kirstyes @HealingFromBPD I think you’ve hit the nail on the head about mindfulness. It’s about slowing down and recognition. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly i think that’s the hard/important part – practicing. i’m sure there are people here who can share suggestions #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:38 +0100)
@Trio33 @pd2ot in my writing groups I use a balance of mindful writing exercises. eg here in this room I can smell, see, hear, etc. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:49 +0100)
@Claire_OT @pd2ot I can be mindfull in some areas of life, perhaps it’s the act of mindfull meditation that I can’t seem to implement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:16:56 +0100)
@clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @BillWongOT yes! huge tweetup would be immense #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:03 +0100)
@Trio33 @pd2ot yes it did help but it must have given me a weird glazed look because the hygeinist kept asking me if I was ok. Lol. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:04 +0100)

@BPDFFS @clissa89 it is very powerful when you have spent years not feeling anything, that’s how much I think mindfulness helps #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:17:51 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @HealingfromBPD @BPDFFS my emotions were running away from me today until i slowed down and took stock, noticed/named! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:08 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley ooh thanks for the tip, will do after the chat. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:20 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I did not see how I was mindful in my work, until I read your blog @pd2ot I thought I was just rubbish at reflection in action 1/2 #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:31 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes One of the DBT skills is to fully ‘participate’ in the moment, so when washing dishes you are only washing dishes [1/2] #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @HealingFromBPD I am planning to go to wherever the #COT conference is in 2014. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:18:48 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot Thanks. It really was blissful. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:03 +0100)
@pd2ot @kirstyes [2/2] not worrying about the next job to be done or other matters. Total participation/engagement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:13 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS @clissa89 I agree. I think mindfulness is important when you are trying to learn new skills- in life and in OT practice. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:34 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @kirstyes not thinking about next job – definitely easier said than done, but makes huge difference #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:44 +0100)
@Helen_otuk 2/2 but I see now that because I immerse myself in the ‘moment’ or in my client interactions that I am not reflecting in action #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:51 +0100)
@kirstyes @Trio33 @pd2ot I do struggle sometimes with my daily #smallstone but writing it makes me reflect on the day. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:17 +0100)
@BPDFFS @pd2ot @kirstyes I think it helps to stop the continual ruminating that happens with #BPD being one mindful #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:21 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk @pd2ot that question in your blog PD2 about reflection and mindfulness has been with me all week! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:34 +0100)
@pd2ot @Trio33 Hehe #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:37 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @Helen_otuk @pd2ot I am very reflective but not sure I am very mindful… I think I need to practice more #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:20:38 +0100)
@clissa89 @kirstyes @trio33 @pd2ot in a small way, doing the #366challenge has ‘forced’ me to pause at least once a day, briefly #smallstone #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:19 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @kirstyes : @HealingFromBPD I think you’ve hit the nail on the head about mindfulness. It’s about slowing down and recognition. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:26 +0100)
@kirstyes Do many people use writing in their mindfulness practice, e.g. Journal/diary/blogs etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:30 +0100)
@CharOReilly #occhat so would you say being mindful is the same as mindfulness?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:34 +0100)
@clissa89 #occhat MT @Nnikki_Duffy : I agree about the fine line between mindful and mindless the point is awareness.(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:40 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @BPDFFS : @clissa89 it is very powerful when you have spent years not feeling anything, that’s how much I think mindfulness helps #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:47 +0100)
@BPDFFS @BillWongOT its like learning to drive a car, you are very mindful to begin with, now its automatic, try driving mindfully now #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:21:57 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @pd2ot : @kirstyes [2/2] not worrying about the next job to be done or other matters. Total participation/engagement #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:06 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS @pd2ot @kirstyes I think it’s fair to generalize it to different conditions and diagnoses, too. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:16 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Yes! Have to say that I have no further answers on that … #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:18 +0100)

@Trio33 @kirstyes @pd2ot writing is good because you write thoughts down in a linear way. It’s good for both mindfulness and reflection #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:26 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @kirstyes : Do many people use writing in their mindfulness practice, e.g. Journal/diary/blogs etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:28 +0100)
@clissa89 @CharOReilly yes i think so – mindful in sense of paying attention on purpose to internal/external experience #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:33 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @kirstyes I definitely use my blog to reflect mindfully on my experiences. I think that’s why so many people tend to connect with it #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:54 +0100)
@kirstyes @pd2ot I did that last night! By hand too, not just dish washing ;0) It was ok doing it as a one off.Used to be painful chore though #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:54 +0100)
@Helen_otuk Yes I loved the bit about reflection in action v mindfullness! I had not thought of it as mindfulness more attentiveness? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:22:59 +0100)
@Claire_OT I think an important part of working mindfully is the idea of “responding” rather than “reacting” which is embedded in mindfulness #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:00 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD RT @clissa89 : @CharOReilly yes i think so – mindful in sense of paying attention on purpose to internal/external experience #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:02 +0100)
@BillWongOT @BPDFFS I actually do when I am on the freeways. Having been in 4 accidents (1 major), I become mindful of my driving a lot more. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:22 +0100)
@gilliancrossley @kirstyes i do, although i wonder if it leads to over analysis sometimes : / #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:36 +0100)
@Helen_otuk But I see it more as mindfullness now as not just attentive to client, but the environment, family, roles etc etc #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:40 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD Mindfulness, for me, is taking an honest look at “What is” accepting it, and acting wisely in response, oh and slowing down impulses #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:23:41 +0100)
@pd2ot #occhat So, are there situations where mindfulness is more helpful than reflection, and vice versa?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:08 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @helen_otuk can be mindful/reflecting-in-action @ work – for me in #mentalhealth especially noticing my emotional response #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:26 +0100)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes haha! I am on the same boat as you. I can tend to over analyze things! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:33 +0100)
@BillWongOT @HealingFromBPD that’s a good way to look at it! I like it! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:58 +0100)
@pd2ot @clissa89 Agree with that one #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:24:59 +0100)
@kirstyes @BPDFFS @pd2ot Ruminating is a huge issue I think for many. #occhat so is it ok to spend time mindfully ruminating?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS Exactly #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:14 +0100)
@BPDFFS @BillWongOT That would be a very good reason to drive mindfully #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @HealingFromBPD @kirstyes i like how you describe the process going from mindless(ish?) to mindful in your posts #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:24 +0100)
@OnyxBPD @HealingFromBPD What is #occhat ?(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:25:59 +0100)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @helen_otuk I stopped myself a few times from saying something in my hand therapy placement due 2 mindfulness. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:00 +0100)
@clissa89 @Helen_otuk @pd2ot my difficulty is the non-judgmental part – i’m constantly assessing – but maybe about intention – open minded #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:19 +0100)
@clissa89 @Claire_OT ooh that sounds like a really interesting point – can you elaborate? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:31 +0100)
@adiemusfree #occhat I’ve used mindfulness in everyday life for about 20 yrs, integrate with practice & reflect on therapy session after the session(Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:35 +0100)

@BillWongOT @BPDFFS but if you see me driving on the service streets, you will just find a punk playing extremely loud music… lol! #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:26:55 +0100)
@pd2ot @BPDFFS I’ve often used mindfulness when driving if preoccupied, I imagine I’m describing every action I do/all I see in short sent. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:10 +0100)
@BPDFFS @kirstyes @pd2ot it stops the ruminating, if you are in the moment, concentrating on the one thing or practising mindful meditation. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:27 +0100)
@Helen_otuk I have enjoyed engaging in the 366project I often use that a daily mindful moment. Then reflection on the situation when posting. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:38 +0100)

@BillWongOT @adiemusfree maybe it’s embedded in our practice that we might not realize initially? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:43 +0100)
@clissa89 @pd2ot i’ve been trying to cultivate more mindful approach by reflecting-before-action, taking moment to notice before seeing client #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:27:45 +0100)
@Claire_OT @pd2ot Definitely, some challenging situations in our profession would certainly benefit from mindfullness over and above reflection #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:04 +0100)
@HealingFromBPD @clissa89 @kirstyes Thank you. That’s pretty much what happens. Nervous system responds initially, then Mindful “Wise Mind” #BPD #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:06 +0100)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes i over-analyse/ruminate too – mindfulness a good challenge – non-judgmental, awareness #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:11 +0100)
@pd2ot @adiemusfree Can you say a little more? Maybe how you feel it benefits practice? #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:12 +0100)
@kirstyes @gilliancrossley Maybe. But links back to @clissa89 point about naming feelings, can’t move on if don’t recognise. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:17 +0100)
@Nnikki_Duffy @BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @kirstyes n e room in that boat for me! Used mindfulness to get over my fear of failing on placement. #occhat (Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:28:17 +0100)
