More about Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a skill we can incorporate into nearly every aspect of our daily life to cope with stress, help us see our lives more clearly, and make the kind of conscious choices that are more self-affirming and supportive of our physical and mental well-being. Studies conducted by Thomas Jefferson University have demonstrated that mindfulness is effective in reducing chronic pain, medical symptoms, anxiety and depression. Other studies have proven stress reduction to be helpful in treating sleep disorders, high blood pressure, heart disease and asthma.
