Scientifically Proven Benefits After
Only 8 Weeks of Mindfulness Training
These 7 are by no means an exhaustive list
One of the profound things about practicing mindfulness is that there is no goal other than to deeply perceive the truth of each moment as it arises and yet there are a wellspring of benefits that arise from this goal-less non-doing.
The great news is we do not need to be Olympic practitioners in order to reap the benefits either.
Only 8 weeks of Therapeutic Mindfulness Training with 45 mins a day of mindful meditation can have lasting beneficial effects.
The benefits of practising Mindfulness are far-reaching, not only for our mental health and well-being, but also for our physical health and longevity.
The evidence base is growing all the time with a multitude of scientific research papers published every year.
The US National Library of Medicine alone published over 3,300 research papers about Mindfulness in 2018.
Even most sceptical of us might be impressed with just how quickly measurable and meaningful results are found, even under the scrutiny of rigorous scientific monitoring
In 2017 leading Neurologist Richie Davidson and
emotional intelligence and meditation teacher, Daniel Goleman published
"Altered Traits". Eking out only Gold Standard research they were able to state:
"After just two weeks of meditation, we start to see hints of change:
Less reaction to stress
Less mind wandering
Less bodily inflammation (an indicator for cancer, heart disease, stroke & more)
They also found, not surprisingly that the more hours of meditation
the participants had racked up in their lives the greater the changes.
