Using Your Mind to Improve Your Health
Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment. A purposeful self-awareness that promotes consciousness of what we are doing, thinking and feeling.
Studies have found that mindfulness causes changes in the brain associated with improved attention, positive emotions, decision making, impulse control, and concentration. Mindfulness has also been shown to improve immune system functioning. It helps to fight disease and illness, as well as aids in healing.
