What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a recent buzzword but has been practiced by people all over the world for thousands of years. Once accessible only to devotees of religious or spiritual faiths (and The Beatles!), now this technique, backed by science, is used to manage health conditions ranging from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression to weight-management and infertility. It is used by elite athletes and organizations to enhance performance outcomes and has been investigated for use with dementia and traumatic brain injury patients.
