Mindfulness fosters self and emotional awareness and insights into how negative feelings adversely affect one’s mind, body, spirit, and health. Mindfulness helps people see that they have choices about how to respond (mentally, emotionally, physically) to adversities. It fosters compassion for oneself, for loved ones, and the world at large. And, it fosters creativity and enhances decision making.
Significant scientific research demonstrates the positive impact of mindfulness in creating calm and inner peace, building resilience, enhancing cognitive functioning, and buttressing one’s immune system. In short, mindfulness fosters thriving under conditions of adversity.
