Benefits of mindfulness
Mindfulness can improve attitudes that lead to a satisfied life, as it makes it easier to enjoy the pleasures in life. It also helps in the participation in activities and create a greater ability to deal with difficult events.
This is achieved by focusing on the present, as many people who practice mindfulness have said that they tend to be less worried about the future or regrets over the past. They are also less preoccupied with concerns about success and self-esteem, and better able to form deeper connections.
Moreover, mindfulness can improve physical health. In fact, scientists have concluded that mindfulness can:
- Help relieve stress;
- Treat heart disease;
- Lower blood pressure;
- Reduce chronic pain;
- Improve sleep;
- Relieve gastrointestinal difficulties.
Another very important benefit of mindfulness is that it can improve mental health. Lately, psychotherapists have used mindfulness meditation in order to treat a number of problems, including:
- Substance abuse;
- Eating disorders;
- Couples’ conflicts;
- Anxiety disorders;
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder.
