The benefits of mindfulness

Mindfulness is the skill of complete presence. It is about striving towards a balanced frame of mind in which you accurately, deliberately, and without judgement sense how different aspects of the present affect you in different ways.

By practicing mindfulness you will learn to perceive more, discover more opportunities, understand the viewpoints of others, find solutions, manage stress better, and know how to make use of intuition, your fast-paced problem solving skill.

There is already a fair amount of scientific study about the benefits of mindfulness. This meta-analysis of 29 studies, found that mindfulness has a strong effect on stress and moderately strong effects on depression, anxiety, distress, and quality of life (Khoury, B. et al., 2015).

Another meta-analysis of 17 studies also found a clear positive connection between mindfulness and stress management. The authors strongly advise including a mindfulness-based stress reduction approach as a part of all stress reduction efforts. (Sharma, M. & Rush, S. E., 2014.)

1. Meditation

Learn to meditate, to strengthen your ability to focus and your ability to regulate your strength, and to be conscious and aware at every moment.

Meditation is scientifically proven to be the means with which we can best regulate our energy levels and to stay focused at work as well as to be able to replenish our strength and restore a calm mind after work.

Harvard University performed a study in 2011, together with the University of Massachusetts Neuroscientist Sara Lazar. The participants of the study were 16 business leaders who meditated 30 minutes per day for eight weeks. The study found robust scientific proof of the benefits of meditation.

The study found not only that meditation reduces stress, but that it changes your brain. Those areas of the brain, that are responsible for fight and flight stress reactions had diminished in size after eight weeks of meditation. The brain scan before and after the study’s eight weeks of meditation also showed that those areas of the brain that correlate with learning and good memory had grown in size. Also the areas of brain that are associated with good perceptive abilities, empathy, and compassion where thicker and bigger.

The old scriptures and the newest scientific research end up in astonishingly similar conclusions, they tell the same story on how to breathe well.

The yoga scriptures in yoga sutras by Patanjali 2600 BC, said that when prana is gone so its life. Prana is breath, air. For nourishment living beings need good food, great water and air. The first important nourishment we have is air, oxygen. Good breathing in a way that the oxygen is transported to each of the tissues, each of the little veins at the extremities and each cell within our body, is our most important nourishment. That is the foundation of good health, that is also the foundation of serenity, feeling good, and taking care yourself & increasing your performance.
