What Can Mindfulness Do For You?

Reduce Stress

Studies show that a regular practice of mindfulness and meditation can reduce the grey-matter density in areas of the brain related with anxiety and stress.

Mental Strength & Focus

A study demonstrated that meditators improved their performance on tests of cognitive skill, in some cases doing 10 times better than non-meditators.

Learning & Memory

Long-term meditators have larger amounts of gyrification (folding in the brain), which scientists suspect helps with processing, decision-making and memory.

Improves Relationships

A regular mindfulness practice increases grey-matter density in parts of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection.

Cardiovascular & Immune Health

Researchers found that during a 5-year study the meditation control group had a 48% reduction in their risk of heart attack, stroke and death.

Mental Health

Researchers found that integrative body-mind training -- a mindful meditation technique -- can result in brain changes that may protect against mental illness.
