Benefits of Mindfulness

 

The benefits of a mindfulness practice can be experienced by nearly anyone and can help one live life more fully, peacefully and resourcefully.

Many studies have found that mindfulness practice:

  • Enhances ability to act effectively under high degrees of stress,
  • Reduces depression and anxiety,
  • Increases well-being,
  • Increases openness to experience,
  • Strengthens immune system, 
  • Increases traits of hardiness, self-awareness, self-trust, and self-acceptance
  • Improves interpersonal relationships,
  • Fosters an awareness that is clear, non-conceptual, and flexible.
  • Positively alters the structure and neural patterns in the brain - strengthening regions associated compassion, equanimity, clarity and wisdom.
