Research has shown that people who are more mindful are generally happier and report less anxiety, symptoms of depression, anger, and worries. A higher degree of mindfulness is also associated with reduced stress and increased gratitude, hope, and vitality.
So if practicing mindfulness holds such powerful potential for our wellbeing, why aren't we all doing it every day?
The reason is often that we need more guidance and support than simply downloading an app. We need to better understand the underlying process and research behind mindfulness.
