Benefits of Mindfulness

Postby josefalbers » Wed Jun 13, 2012 6:16 am

Hello,
Mindfulness is not a new idea. It has been part of religious texts for centuries, poets and writers have sung its praises, and it has been central to many contemplative traditions such as Buddhism. Scientific research has shown growing evidence that cultivating mindfulness can increase our enjoyment of life, expand our capacity to cope with illness, and improve our physical and emotional health. It is a powerful tool in reducing the stress and anxiety that occurs with chronic illness and as an adjunct to modern medicine it may enhance other treatments.

One form of mindfulness practice is a discipline called mindfulness meditation, which involves sitting quietly for 20 or 30 minutes, once or twice a day. Begin by focusing on the breath while allowing the mind and body to let go of thoughts and sensations.
