Mindfulness: For Instant Improvement to Mind & Body
If our last article didn't persuade you about the importance of mindfulness then what has been discovered in the following study might do the trick: ‘In just eight weeks of training in mindfulness and mindfulness meditation, studies show that the brain and the way it processes emotion under stress can be changed. At the end of eight weeks, the immune system is more robust, people feel calmer, and they feel more comfortable with their bodies. Their risk of injury is dramatically reduced.’ Tamara Mitchell This shows that Mindfulness has an instant effect if one is willing to stick to it on regular bases.
