Dr Sarah Maynard
Mindfulness has been shown to decrease levels of stress and symptoms of anxiety and depression. Not only can practicing it reduce these negative aspects it has been shown to increase our levels of resilience and positive emotions
The benefits of practicing mindfulness have also extended beyond our emotions to our physical health. Research has shown it to be linked with lower levels of chronic disease and inflammation and increased immune system functioning.
Our brains benefit from mindfulness too! Research shows that many areas of cognitive function improve with regular mindfulness practice particularly our frontal lobe abilities including memory, attention, concentration and our ability to inhibit impulses
SENSE OF CONNECTION
Our western society focuses on us as individuals and this can leave us with a sense of disconnection from those around us. Through mindful practice we gain awareness of our interconnectedness and relationships and sense of closeness to others.
