Why Mindfulness?

Why the ancient wisdom of mindfulness?

Scientific studies show that mindfulness results in:

  • Increased kindness and compassion to others, including greater empathy, tolerance, forgiveness and patience, and less anger and hostility
  • Reductions in stress, burnout and anxiety, including a reduction in days off work
  • Improved ability to manage thoughts and behavior
  • An increase in coping skills, motivation, planning and problem solving, and taking more time to relax
  • Better mental health, including less distress, negative emotion, depression and anxiety
  • Greater well-being, including life satisfaction, self-confidence, self-efficacy, self-compassion and sense of personal growth
  • Better physical health, including lower blood pressure, declines in cortisol (a stress hormone) and fewer reported physical health problems
