What is Mindfulness? Simple answers, profound meaning. (credits to MindfulNEWS)                    

Mindfulness has nothing to do with religion.

This form of mind-body medicine was brought into the mainstream of medicine and society by Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, an American professor emeritus of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is the author of numerous scientific papers on the clinical applications of mindfulness in medicine and healthcare.

Put simply, mindfulness trains our minds to pay attention to the present moment, without judging our experiences. It helps us to develop tools so that we gain control of our thoughts as we become less distracted. This enables us to respond to our experiences in a way that benefits us.

It involves:

1) Being aware of our thoughts without judgement
2) Bringing our attention back to our breath

 

How can mindfulness benefit you?

As mindfulness trains our minds to minimise ruminating about our past or worrying about our future, we experience better physical and emotional health.

Extensive scientific research has found that mindfulness leads to:

  • reduced negative feelings (stress, anxiety, depression, anger)
  • increased positive feelings (self-compassion, empathy)
  • better quality of sleep
  • enhanced cardiovascular health
  • less chronic pain
  • improved cognitive function (attention, working memory)
