What can mindfulness do for you?

Here is a short list:

  • Mindfulness meditation is a bit like going to the gym for your heart and mind
  • Lets us drop into our lives more peacefully
  • Live longer by being fully present more of them time (instead of living always in the past or future)
  • Opens and clears your heart
  • Generates compassion
  • Steadies the mind
  • Increases focus and reduce distractibility
  • Increases creative thinking/problem solving capacity
  • Helps us deal with conflict more easily
  • Face difficulties and “negative” emotions with more grace
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase health with improved immunity, lowering blood pressure
  • Alleviate anxiety, depression, and addiction problems
